Here’s The Bangor 2021 Spring Clean Up Information You’ve Been Looking For
Gee, your yard is a mess, ya know.
Well, when you're done raking, sweeping, picking up branches, and generally cleaning up the property, the City of Bangor has some guidance as what to do next.
Once again this year, Bangor Public Works employees will be making the rounds picking up branches and what they call "woody waste." They'd like you to set your woody waste curbside and parallel to the road, away from any wires that are overhead. Do this before Monday, April 26th, at 6:30 a.m. They will not pick up any demolition debris, even if it's wood, so don't set that out. Mix in demolition debris with your woody waste, and they'll let it all stay where it lays.
If you miss the woody waste deadline of April 26th, then take it to Public Works at 530 Maine Avenue and drop it off there. You'll also find an organic waste pile there as well, and this is where you'll drop off branches, brush, plant waste and leaves. Public Works at 530 Maine Avenue is open 7 days a week from sunrise to sunset. Make sure that you check in with whomever is in the Public Works office before you unload.
Public Works employees will also be picking up scrap metal this year as well, and the deadline for setting that out curbside is also April 26th at 6:30 a.m. Scrap metal includes washers, dryers, charcoal grills, etc. It does not include electronic waste like computers or TVs. It cannot contain Freon or any liquid hazardous waste like gas, oil, mercury, or paint.
Bangor Public Works will not be making a "second round" so get it all out curbside before the 26th of this month. More information can be found HERE.
