Annual Spring Clean-Up for Highland Park Residents
Veolia Environmental Waste Services will be conducting their annual Spring Clean-Up Program for the City of Highland Park on four consecutive Saturdays, beginning April 30 and ending May 21. This is a great opportunity for Highland Park Residents to declutter and get rid of their JUNK. Every year it amazes me how much “stuff” we accumulate to put out at the curb. This year will be a big declutter year for us from a trampoline to a couch to many other knick knacks – it’s the perfect time to purge!
As an REALTOR in Highland Park IL – I know that the annual Spring Clean-Up Program is fabulous for those who are selling a home and for those who have bought a home. I actually just reminded one of my clients who has been living in their home for over twenty years to take advantage of the special pick up – IT IS FREE!!! For those of you who are thinking about moving it is a great time to get rid of all of the things that you have kept throughout the years that you no longer need. For the buyers who have just moved in – get rid of the boxes and wrapping supplies and of course “those extras” that you have no idea why you actually took with you from your last home.
Items for collection may be placed at the curb up to seven days prior to the collection date, but residents are encouraged to set out items as close to their collection day as is convenient. Often times, your garbage is taken prior to the actual Spring Clean-Up day by people who are driving/walking by your home. As it is said “One Man’s trash is another Man’s treasure!”
In order to guarantee collection, all items for collection must be placed at the curb by no later than 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled collection day. Spring Clean-Up will coincide with residents primary garbage collection day (the primary collection day is the day when both garbage and recycling are collected).
