Community Clean-up Day set for May 4
Wauneta’s annual Community Clean-up Day is coming up next week, with organizers making plans for a town-wide cleaning Wednesday, May 4.
Students at Wauneta-Palisade Schools will tackle trash pickup around town and property owners are encouraged to do likewise on privately owned land.
Those needing extra help can count on the crew from the Wauneta Utilities Department once again.
In order to assist homeowners and businesses with items that need to be hauled away, the Wauneta Utilities Department crew will be available on that day — free of charge — to pick up items like tree limbs, wood, household items and appliances. The Wauneta Chamber is covering the cost of disposal of these items.
To get your name included on the pick-up list sign up no later than 3 p.m. MT on Tuesday, May 3, at Valley Bank and Trust in Wauneta.
You must make arrangements for pickup services prior to the May 4 Community Clean-up Day.
