SPRING CLEAN UP WEEK IS AROUND THE CORNER
Mark your calendars for April 8-12. The Public Works Dept. will provide its annual free curbside collection for residential customers. REMEMBER--different materials are picked up on different days subject to weather conditions, BUT PLEASE HAVE ALL MATERIALS AT THE CURB BY MONDAY APRIL 8.
Guidelines: 1) Keep piles away from meter pits and your trash/recycle carts. 2) Old appliances that contain Freon must have it safely removed and tagged by a certified technician. 3) Separate materials into groups: construction/demolition, general junk, metals, brush/vegetation, and bagged yard waste.
EXCLUDED: normal recyclables, household trash, hazardous wastes (such as motor oil, pesticides, paint), liquids of any kind, tires, concrete, or large amounts of wood.
More details will be in your April ECHO in your water bill.
2024 PET TAGS
Get your 2024 pet tags between December 1, 2023 and March 1, 2024 for only $3 or $5. A penalty is applied after March 1. Don't forget to provide proof of unexpired Rabies Vaccinations.
SEWER RE-AVERAGING PERIOD
Residential water consumption between mid-November and mid-February is averaged and becomes your new sewer consumption for a whole year beginning with the April 2024 bill. THE BOTTOM LINE: The more water you use during these winter months, the higher your sewer charge will be for a whole year. Fix leaky toilets, faucets, and other plumbing issues as they occur. Exceptions will be made for verified underground leaks.
PLASTIC BAG COLLECTION CHALLENGE
Bethel College Mennonite Church is participating in a short-term collection challenge to gather 1000 lbs. of plastic film and bags. Collection receptacles are located in the City Hall lobby, at Kidron Bethel and the Bethel College Mennonite Church. Once they have collected 1000 lbs. the challenge will conclude and the receptacles will be removed.
Bags/wraps/film must be clean and dry with all paper labels removed.
