Louisville sets date for fall cleanup


LOUISVILLE - When the town holds it’s annual fall cleanup this year, they’ll not only be getting paid for whatever scrap metal they collect, but they’ll also be receiving money from their first ever electronic waste collection.

This year’s clean up will be held from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 15 to 20.

Residents are still invited to drop off large items, such as old appliances, furniture and scrap metal, but this year the town will also be collecting electronic waste like computers, cell phones and televisions.

“We’re going to try this electronic waste collection,” Town Supervisor Larry R. Legault said, adding a separate container for electronics will be dropped off for town residents to put their electronic waste in.

“They’ll pay us based on how much we collect,” Mr. Legault said.

The town will again be utilizing the county’s solid waste department for the cleanup with the county dropping off dumpsters at the beginning of the week and removing them at the end of the week.

Mr. Legault said the county will also take care of recycling whatever metal is collected, giving whatever proceeds there may be from the event back to the town.

Town employees will be available to assist residents with unloading their vehicles and pick-up for those unable to transport large items is available by calling the town office at 769-0457.

This cleanup event is for town residents only and those utilizing the service must show proof of residency when dropping items off.

Liquids, tires, regular household garbage and construction debris will not be accepted.

The town will then host it’s annual leaf and brush pick up the following week.

For further information, please call the town office at the number listed above.
