Spring Community Clean Up Day is May 14

Painesville's Spring Community Clean Up Day will be held on Saturday, May 14. There are two ways to participate:

  • Volunteer (9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.): Volunteer as an individual or group to pick up litter and remove weeds on the roadside, parks and public areas. Trash bags, pickers, gloves and t-shirt are provided to all volunteers. Register online at www.painesville.com/cleanup.
  • Clean Your Home/Yard (all day): Community pride starts at home: clean out the garage, organize the house, spruce up the yard, paint the fence, clean the gutters, help your elderly neighbor... the sky's the limit! Trash, recycling and yard waste pick up will be on your normally scheduled pick up day. Also remember bulk items can be picked up on your normal refuse day as well
      • Household furniture, mattresses, box springs or anything made of cloth material MUST be wrapped in plastic prior to pick up. Carpeting must be tied and rolled into 4 feet lengths. Any items not wrapped in plastic will not be picked up to protect the safety of Republic crews
      • Tables, swing sets, lamps, small appliances, some home construction debris, etc. can be placed at the curb
      • Not permitted items include large car parts, tires, batteries and any liquids
      • Call customer service at 216-441-6300 to schedule disposal of large appliances like refrigerators and washing machines
