The City of Mena has scheduled their Annual Spring Clean-Up for Tuesday, April 7, through Monday, April 13. City trucks will pick up items you wish to discard at no charge. There are certain regulations to follow in order for the pick-up to run smoothly.
This Clean-up service is free for residences within the City limits of Mena only. Materials will not be picked up unless they are placed at the curb-side and separated.
The City of Mena has stressed that, “it is very important to separate any items that you want to keep away from those that are to be discarded, such as trash cans.”
The following items cannot be picked up: tires, concrete, brick, rocks, dirt, shingles, batteries, and construction debris.
Please separate your items to be discarded into 5 distinct piles as follows:
- Furniture – couches, chairs, T.V., window frames, etc.
- Household trash – paper items, etc. (Please place trash cans that you wish to keep to one side, so that they will not be disposed of inadvertently)
- Metal material – hot water heaters, stoves, appliances, etc.
- Yard wastes – tree limbs, shrubs, grass, etc.
The City said it is required that all yard debris such as small limbs, gum balls, and leaves be placed in garbage bags.
The Mena Street Department will begin pick-up in the northwest part of the city and work their way across town following the same routes as Southern Disposal. Trucks will run 1 to 3 days after the day of your normal trash pick-up. The City said in a press release that the response to this Clean-Up is usually overwhelming, “so please be patient if the trucks are running somewhat behind the posted schedule; however, each route will only be covered one time. It is not necessary to call City Hall in order to receive this service.”
