Posted on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 | Press & Media

Wyoming, Michigan, March 22, 2017– The City of Wyoming is planning a Community Clean-up Day on Saturday, April 22.

Residents can drop off trash, household hazardous waste and donations for the Salvation Army from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Godwin Elementary School, 161 34th St. SW, Wyoming MI 49548. Plummers Disposal will provide refuse hauling while Kent County will accept household hazardous waste and recyclables. 

Entrance to the site will be in the northbound curb lane of Buchanan from 35th Street to the south driveway of the school. Southbound Buchanan traffic will not be permitted to turn left into the site. Traffic will exit from the site to northbound Buchanan only.

“Last year’s clean-up day was such a success that it became a staff priority to repeat the event,” said Nancy Stoddard, event organizer. “Our annual clean-up day helps to reduce the risk of blight and beautify our neighborhoods throughout the community.”

In addition to the refuse hauling, household hazardous waste disposal and recycling, the Wyoming Public Service Center Yard Waste Drop-Off site at 2660 Burlingame Ave. SW will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. There are no limits to the size of branches or shrubs accepted at the site; however residents must unload the yard waste themselves and all containers must be removed from the facility.

Proof of residency identification is required at both sites. Some items will have a modest disposal fee. 

Tommy Brann of Brann’s Steakhouse & Grille will provide lunch for the volunteers.
