City of Perkins - City-Wide Clean Up Day
Saturday, August 08, 2020
8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Perkins residents will have an opportunity to purge unwanted and unused items from their closets and garages during the annual Clean-Up Day. The event will be held on Saturday, August 08.
This events gives city residents an opportunity to place unwanted items curb-side to be picked up by the local trash company – items that might not otherwise be collected on a normal basis (smaller brush piles, furniture that’s easily crushable, mattresses up to full size, and miscellaneous household trash).
For larger items that cannot be picked up curb-side / will not fit in a garbage truck (large brush piles, metal or wood, railroad ties, larger mattresses, heavy furniture, appliances etc.) large roll-off dumpsters will be made available at the City’s West Shop at 319 E. Industrial (Knipe St., and Industrial Ave.), just south of Dickson Park. You must enter the area from Kenworthy St. (taking Kenworthy west from the Junior High School, around the bus barn, and around Dickson Park. NO ENTRY from Knipe St. Signs will be posted.
The large item dumpsters are available to Perkins residents only! In the past, many out-of-town residents used the opportunity to bring trash into town during the event. However this is not allowed. People who come to drop off items will be required to prove their residency by showing their driver’s license or any utility bill showing a Perkins address.
** Please note: there will be no one there to help you unload you items, so please make sure you've made arrangements to have someone go with you to help you unload. City Staff will be there to monitor the dumpsters, but are not responsible for unloading your items - that will be the responsibility of the resident. **
A complete list rules and a list of acceptable and non-acceptable items will be posted closer to the day of the event.
