Spring Clean-Up Week in Crookston April 25-29 – Crookston Times
City of Crookston
The City of Crookston announces “Spring Clean-Up Week” Monday, April 25 through Friday, April 29, 2022. Pick-up will be made on your regular garbage day ONLY and pickup will not be extended after April 29.
Cleanup items should be separated into the following piles: garbage, clothing, cardboard, appliances, branches and yard waste, furniture, metal items, demolition and tires. All items must be placed on the street boulevard. Separating these items will greatly assist in the cleanup effort.
In awareness of clean up week in Crookston, Polk County Public Health advises to not bring furniture, mattresses, box springs or bed frames found on the street into your home in order to prevent the spread of bed bugs. http://www.bedbugs.umn.edu/
There will be a compost amnesty for the Spring Clean-Up which means leaves, grass clippings and garden waste WILL NOT have to be put in clear City compost bags for this week of April 25-29 ONLY.
Due to state law, all video display devices (TVs, computer monitors, etc.) cannot be land-filled. Therefore, these items will not be collected during clean-up. These devices may be disposed of at Polk County Environmental Services (Transfer Station) free of charge. Video display devices left on the boulevard for more than 48 hours are subject to a $25 penalty surcharge.
Branches must be cut in four foot lengths and be bundled.
The City will not collect concrete, batteries, partially full paint cans or other chemicals, and large amounts of demolition debris. Arrangements for the disposal of these items can be made by contacting Polk County Environmental Services at 281-6445.
Items should be placed on boulevards no more than 72 hours prior to your collection day. Only those with residential water/garbage rates are on clean-up week.
