The City of Fort Morgan’s Annual Spring Cleanup Program has been scheduled for Feb. 29 through March 8, 2020. During this time, the city’s Streets and Sanitation Departments will pick up trash items at no charge to residents within city limits.
You must be a residential city sanitation customer to participate in the program. Contractors and businesses are not permitted.
Please note the following program requirements:
--Items must be placed in the alley, be clearly marked and kept from blowing away. Please place items in dumpsters or rollouts if they fit, and do not put out small items that can fit in a dumpster or rollout container.
--Areas without alley access may place items behind the curb or in the parking area of the street leaving the gutter clear for drainage.
--TREES ARE NOT ALLOWED. Entire trees cannot be cut down and placed out for the cleanup. Only trimmings of brush or small branches are permitted and must be placed in a separate pile.
--Place metal items in a separate pile.
--Properly cover, secure and/or wrap loose/light items to minimize blowing away.
--Batteries and used motor oil can be disposed of by taking them to Central Auto Parts, The Auto Zone, Carquest or O’Reilly Auto Parts.
--Please be advised that City crews will NOT go on private property.
--After the pickup crews have been through your area, they will not come back. All items must be out by March 8 in order to be picked up.
The following items are not allowed in the free program: tires, cans of paint or other hazardous chemicals including motor oil, railroad ties, refrigerators, freezers or air conditioner units. Electronics such as TVs, computers, copy machines, fax machines, DVD or VCR players, video game consoles or any other type of electronics are not allowed and must be recycled. Additionally, this program is not available to contractors or businesses.
This program ends March 8, 2020. Nothing is to be placed in the alleys outside of designated dumpsters or by curbs after this date or customers will be charged for service. Please note that it may take several days after the end of the program for crews to finish removing all items.
If you have any questions, please contact the Sanitation Department at 542-3985. It is not necessary to call when you have placed items out for pickup, as crews will find them as they work their way through the city.
