City-Wide Spring Cleanup Event is April 15 and 16
Please place your items on the curb by 6 a.m. on April 15 or 16, depending upon which date is your designated trash collection day. The collection may last through April 17 due to the volume.
If you live in an apartment, condo or townhome with private trash collection, you may not be a part of the Spring Clean-up Event. Please contact your association or management to find out.
The total amount of debris on your curb must fit into the size of a flatbed truck, roughly 8 ft x 5.5 ft x 3 ft. Extra debris will not be collected.
Items not accepted in the collection include appliances, yard waste, tires, electronic waste, hazardous waste, drywall, broken glass, and concrete. Items from small home improvement projects, like a few doors or windows, will be allowed. Items from large construction projects will not be picked up.
Weight rule: If two people can reasonably lift an accepted item, then it will be collected. Heavier items will not be collected. The average Johnston household pays around $6 per year (included in your monthly utility bill) for this Spring Clean-up Event --- so take advantage of it!
