The Michigan City, Refuse Department will conduct its Annual Spring Clean-Up beginning on March 25, 2019. The Refuse Department requests that all residents separate the debris that is to be discarded into the following three (3) categories:
- Brush, limbs, shrubs, yard waste, and unpainted concrete (no black-top rubble);
- Rugs, lumber, furniture, mattress, and box-springs; and
- Appliances and tires. Tires can be rimmed or un-rimmed, and appliances include items such as stoves, refrigerators, air conditions, water tanks, etc.
Please keep the above items separated as described above. Residents may place items on curbside or in the alleys, whichever is most convenient.
The City will be divided into three (3) Zones, with each zone having two (2) separate weeks when items can be placed out for the special Spring Clean-Up. Residents should place items out for pick-up on the same day as your normal refuse pick-up day, but only during the corresponding week for the Zone in which they reside.
