Monday is Earth Day and Danbury is doing a little spring cleaning this weekend. Clean City Danbury Day is being held on Saturday. Mayor Mark Boughton says it's a time for residents to drop off their bulky waste.
Volunteers are supplied with safety vests and trash bags. Bulk garbage dumping is restricted to city residents and property owners, ID will need to be shown at drop off. No commercial vehicles will be allowed. That means no vehicles with any business name on them, no vehicles with a commercial plate, and no vehicles that can clearly be used for hauling.
Boughton says a number of people have volunteered to help keep Danbury beautiful by picking up litter off city streets and helping residents unload bulk waste.
Construction debris and grass clippings or yard debris will not be accepted. Electronics can be recycled year round, for free, at the Recycle Ceter on White Street and must be brought there. Hazardous waste won't be collected tomorrow. Hazardous Waste Day is in September.
Scrap metal, tires and white appliances containing freon must be kept separate from other garbage.
Bulk waste collection will run from 8am to noon.
