Clean-up week in Olney will be held from 8 a.m. Saturday, May 11, through 7 p.m. Saturday, May 18. The convenience station will be open from 8 a.m.-noon and 1-5 p.m. during this time, except on Sunday, May 12.
Roll-off containers will be located at the convenience station, and residents are asked to carry all debris, old appliances, limbs, bagged leaves and other junk to the appropriate location. When loading items, please sort them into limbs and branches, metal and other like debris for easier unloading. Everyone is asked to please remove debris from alleyways and from beside dumpsters to allow emergency vehicle and trash truck access, when needed. Any debris remaining in alleys after clean-up week will be documented, and fines may be issued.
The city crew will make one sweep to pick up curbside trash beginning Saturday, May 11. Pick-up of debris will stop at 6 p.m. Friday, May 17. The city does not guarantee that all curbside debris will be picked up, as the service will be extended only as time permits. Residents are asked to take as much trash as possible to the convenience station, since items left at curbside after May 17 will be the resident’s responsibility to remove.
Please sort items left on the curb into piles for metal, limbs and branches, bagged leaves, appliances and other debris. Do not mix items. Crews may pick up metals one day and other items on other days during the week. Items not at the curb that are to be thrown away after May 11 should be taken to the convenience station, instead.
Absolutely no batteries will be taken at curbside or at the convenience station. Tires will not be accepted curbside, either. They may be taken to the convenience station for the following fees:
• Hi flotation – $150 each.
• Large tractor tires – $120 each.
• Medium tractor tires – $30 each.
• Small tractor tires – $12 each.
• Truck tires over 20 inches – $9 each.
• Passenger tires without rims – $4 each.
Any tire with a rim will be charged an extra $5 per tire.
Used oil and filters may be taken to the city shop from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. any weekday for disposal. Place oil in a plastic container with a lid. Oil filters cost 10 cents each for disposal, and must be placed in tied bags.
Please do not call City Hall, as no pick-up list will be made during clean-up week.
