City bulk trash pickup continues Saturday

STEUBENVILLE – The city’s spring bulk trash pickup will continue this week on the north side of Sunset Boulevard from Brady Avenue to the western city limits.

“On May 4 we will be doing the south side of Sunset Boulevard from McCauslen Manor to the western city limits. On May 11 we will be conducting the bulk pickup on all streets on Pleasant Heights, and we will finish this year’s pickup on May 18 on all streets on LaBelle View,” explained Sanitation and Street Superintendent Bob Baird.

“The regular sanitation schedule remains in effect during the bulk pick-up campaign,” Baird added.

“We will not pick up any kind of tires, computers, televisions or any kind of electronics with freon gases such as freezers, refrigerators, air conditioning units or dehumidifers. We will also not pick up hazardous wastes or petrochemicals, including fuels, oils, solvents or paint or any construction materials such as shingles, concrete, block or brick,” stated Baird.

He added all household items should be placed at the curb area where regular trash collection occurs.

“This should be done the Friday night prior to the scheduled bulk collection. Once the Saturday collection is completed there will not be any return trips,” said Baird.
