Get ready for the big clean up.
Monday, September 14 will be the first day of a one-time sweep of Sylvania Township streets to pick up brush and leaves which may have accumulated through the summer. It also will be the first day for the collection of unwanted household items.
Rob Nash, superintendent of the roads department, said to be on the safe side, it is a good idea to have all items at curbside the night before.
Leaves and branches should be separated and not left in the street, but at the curb, he said, adding that the process is not meant for the results of lot clearing or tree removal. Accumulated limbs and branches should be no more than 6 ft. in length or 6 in. in diameter.
Sylvania Township has contracted with Archbold Refuse Service Inc for the household item pickup. Those items, too, should be left at the curb, not in the street.
Items that will be collected are bicycles, bundled books, and papers, rolled carpeting (no longer than five feet), empty containers and drums.
Also collected will be furniture (any item with legs more than 12 in. should be separated from the item), appliances without refrigerants, mattresses and box springs, miscellaneous (non-hazardous) loose material placed in disposable containers and toys.
