It’s time to prepare for the big clean-up.
Monday, September 13 will be the first day of a one-time sweep of Sylvania Township streets to pick up brush that 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 the curbside by Sunday night, September 12.
Tree limbs, branches, and other brush should be separated from household items and not left in the street.
He added that the pickup is not meant for lot clearing or tree removal. Accumulated limbs and branches should be no more than 6 ft. in length or 6 inches 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.
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.
The annual leaf collection is scheduled to begin on October 12.
