Spring cleaning

Spring Cleaning Suspended

The City’s Spring Clean Up Event scheduled for April 16th, 17th, and 18th has been suspended. Below is a message from the City’s contract solid waste service provider, Mid Valley Disposal.

“I want to thank those of you who have responded to my email updates regarding Mid-Valley’s services. The discussions have been overwhelmingly positive and valuable. Based on the conversations with my management team and many of you, we will be SUSPENDING spring clean-up events until further notice. As you know, these events require frequent face to face interaction with the public. We feel this is appropriate in light of the potential to spread the COVID-19 throughout your communities and our employees. Our goal is to maintain the essential solid waste services for all our communities”.

Joseph Kalpakoff.
President
Mid Valley Disposal
