City of Mena spring clean-up

The City of Mena Annual Spring Clean-Up is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, March 5. City trucks will pick up items you want to dispose of at no charge. This Clean-Up service is free for residences within the city limits of Mena only.

Please follow the below listed regulations to ensure that the pick-up runs smoothly.

Materials will not be picked up unless they are placed at the curbside and separated. Street Department personnel cannot go onto private property to assist in moving items.

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).

Notice, the following items cannot be picked up: concrete, brick, rocks, dirt, shingles, batteries, and construction debris.

Please separate your items to be discarded into five distinct piles as follows:
Furniture — couches, chairs, televisions, 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 waste — tree limbs, shrubs, grass, etc.

Note – it is required that all small yard debris, such as small limbs, gum balls, leaves and grass, 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 1-3 days after the day of your normal trash pick-up.

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.
