THAYER -- The Thayer City Council voted during their February council meeting to set Clean-Up, Paint-Up, Fix-Up or Pride Week for March 27-31 in the city. Trash will be picked up on regular trash days during the week.
Trash haulers remind residents that a roll-off container will be placed beside the police station and will remain there all week for large items such as furniture. Motor oil can be taken to the Oregon County Recycling Center.
All trash is to be boxed, bagged or canned.
"Council members and local firefighters are asking that every resident and property owner within the city limits, as well as civic clubs, schools, churches and scout organizations to take an active part in the spring cleaning that will include the residential and business sections of the city," Thayer Mayor Allen Deckard said.
Heavy steel, rocks, concrete, tires, fluids, paint, oil and car batteries will not be acceptable for the pickup.
City officials said white goods such as refrigerators may be set on the curb and they will be picked up by calling City Hall at 264-3921.
Yard waste, including lawn clippings, will not be picked up.
Deckard said the council also reminds city residents that weeds and grass on residential and vacant lots should be trimmed through the growing season.
Refuse will be picked up on the south side of Thayer March 27 and on the north side of the city March 28.
