Wright Township Plans Annual Cleanup May 4-9

Wright Township residents will soon have the chance to dispose of oversized items as part of an annual spring cleanup, which will run May 4 to 9, and later be given the opportunity to discard of electronic devices, on June 4.

Donald Zampetti, chairman to the township’s board of supervisors, announced at last week’s meeting that there are two stages to the cleanup. First, he said, residents may arrange to have township workers pick up large items at their residences on May 4 or 5. The fee for pickup is $10, with an additional $5 charge for items such as couches, mattresses, grills, and lawn tractors. Residents must call the township building at least a week in advance to arrange the pickup.

The other part of the cleanup allows residents to drop off bulky items at dumpsters behind the municipal building, on South Mountain Boulevard, on May 6 to 9. The dumpsters will be available on May 6, from 7 a. m. to 4 p. m.; on May 7 and 8, from 7 a. m. to 6 p. m.; and on May 9, from 8 a. m. to 4 p. m.

A permit is required for dumping of materials, which is only open to Wright Township residents. Items not permitted for disposal are construction materials, paint cans, auto parts, propane tanks, and
