The city of Summerville is holding a spring clean-up week starting May 9 and ending May 16.
Residents must have their items ready for pickup on the edge of the street. If you have brush, limbs, etc., have them separated from the other items.
"This will help people get rid of some of their stuff. The community has come to really like it and appreciate it and think it's a good service we can provide. It's also to help clean up the yards and right-of-ways they have around. If we are offering a free service maybe they will put it out. This will also help us clean up around town a little," Summerville City Manager Russell Thompson said.
The city cannot pick up the following: tires, shingles, paint, batteries, building materials, contractor waste, asbestos, oil and fuel, automobiles, boats, flammable materials and any other hazardous material as deemed so by the City of Summerville.
Summerville Main Street Program coordinator, Susan Locklear, said other spring cleaning and sprucing up projects are underway. The 4-H and county extension program will be hanging their flower baskets in downtown Summerville soon.
The large planters on the street corners will also have new plants.
"The city will be planting seasonal color plants that are sun loving and heat tolerate," Locklear said.
