Rouses Point plans Spring Cleanup Days

ROUSES POINT — The Village of Rouses Point will hold its Spring Cleanup Days Monday, May 6, through Friday, May 10.

Residents are requested to bag as much of the material as possible and place it curbside by 7:30 a.m. in a way that the pickup truck collecting the bags is not hindered by parked cars or other interference.

“This will greatly facilitate the collection,” a village press release said.

The collection, the only one this spring, is just for bagged clippings, leaves and brush, along with tree limbs no larger than 3 inches in diameter. The next pickup will take place in the fall.

The compost facility will be used for leaves and bagged clippings, only, not tree branches.
