East Spencer to hold community-wide clean up day

EAST SPENCER — The town of East Spencer will hold a community cleanup day this Saturday. Residents are encouraged to place items for collection at the curb or street edge, town officials said.

Typical items for collection include old furniture, discarded electronics, appliances, rim-less tires, mattresses and other bulky objects. There are no fees to collect these items. This is an effort to clean up the town, officials said.

Officials said the service is available only to East Spencer residents.

The town says hazardous materials such as pesticides, pool chemicals, prescription medicines and paint will not be collected.

Residents who are able are asked to help elderly or physically challenged neighbors place items for street pickup. Crews from the town’s Public Works Department will be assisted by collection teams from Figueroa Roofing Co. and Nunez Environmental Demolition, which volunteered their services.

Community or civic groups that would like to volunteer are asked to contact Town Hall this week.

Plastic bags are available for pick up between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this week.

“The Community Cleanup Day on March 23 will be a great time for East Spencer residents to express civic pride by cleaning up their properties and around their neighborhoods. Our goal is to make East Spencer a place to see and be seen,” said Mayor Barbara Mallett.

Waste Management Inc. will provide a large dumpster in the parking lot behind the East Spencer Fire Department for disposal of litter bags or larger items hauled by town residents.
