Preston’s annual spring cleanup will begin on Monday, April 22, and conclude on Friday, May 3.

Material will be collected on the north side of Oneida from April 22-26. City crews will pick debris up on the south side of Oneida from April 29-May 3.

FCMC - WILLOW VAL PATTEN 4X9.5City council president Saundra Hubbard said the cleanup period has been pushed back a week this year because of heavy snow cover on the valley floor.

Public works director John Balls asks residents to make sure they have all materials to the curb on the north side of Oneida by Thursday, April 25. On the south side of Oneida, items need to be placed at curbside by Thursday, May 2.

This will allow crews enough time on both Fridays to finish up the respective areas, he added. The city will collect the same types of items at curbside as they did last year.

Officials said there will be some limitations on what will be taken by city crews. No cement, large tree stumps, paint, any chemicals, batteries, petroleum products, insecticides, herbicides, demolition debris or other items deemed toxic will be taken.

Officials said all metal objects, including stoves and refrigerators, will have to be piled together. All old tires will need to be in a separate pile. Green waste (grass, leaves and other similar materials) will need to be bagged.

Balls said all tree and brush limbs need to be cut in lengths not exceeding eight feet. All limbs and woody material need to be placed on the curbside laying in the same direction, he said.
