Morenci's city-wide trash collection 07.21.10

Written by David Green.

What didn’t get sold at last weekend’s city-wide yard sales just might return to yard again this weekend—a little closer to the curb this time around.

Morenci’s annual rubbish collection begins at 7 a.m. Saturday. Trash should be placed at the curb before the collection begins, because once the truck has traveled down a street, it won’t be back for more.

Modern Waste Systems has rules in place regarding the pick-up, including these:

Items must be of the size that two people can handle;  small items should be placed in a box or other container; vehicle tires, liquids, paint cans, large auto parts, televisions, microwaves, computer monitors and fluorescent bulbs should not be placed at the curb; refrigerators must have a CFC removal sticker; construction items such as bricks, concrete and cement blocks will not be taken.

The rubbish collection is only for the citizens of Morenci. A penalty will charged for items brought into the city.
