The City of Minot will hold a fall cleanup week beginning Oct. 23 to help residents dispose of unwanted items free of charge.
After originally not scheduling a fall cleanup day to concentrate on the implementation of the new automated garbage pickup system, City officials decided that a fall cleanup day was necessary.

“After receiving input from Minot residents and City staff, it became clear that a fall cleanup was indeed necessary,” said City Manager Tom Barry. “Our Public Works staff has done a great job of working out the logistics of the fall cleanup week, and we look forward to providing this needed service to the residents of Minot.”

For the fall cleanup week, the city will be divided into four sections, with City of Minot Sanitation Department crews concentrating on one section per day during the week of Oct. 23. During the fall cleanup week, residents can also bring approved waste to the City of Minot Landfill free of charge if they provide a Minot utility bill.

A map of the four zones and information about the fall cleanup week can also be found on the City of Minot’s website at minotnd.org.
“The fall cleanup week is an opportunity for Minot residents to get rid of some things that may have been accumulating over the summer months,” said Jason Sorenson, Assistant Public Works Director for the City of Minot. “By dividing the City into four zones, we can more efficiently and effectively utilize our crews, and it gives residents time to plan ahead so they can have their unwanted items set out on the curb on their designated day.”

The following guidelines will be in effect for the fall cleanup week:
? There is a limit of two appliances per household.
? The City will accept tires and propane tanks.
? All waste should be set out on the boulevard or curb before 7 a.m. on your scheduled day.
? Any items placed in the alley will not be collected.
? All containers that are not garbage cans will be thrown away.
? Yard waste, trees and branches should not be set out as part of the fall cleanup week.

During the fall cleanup week, the City will not accept paints, stains, oil, varnishes and any other household hazardous waste. E-waste will also not be accepted. Household hazardous waste and e-waste can be brought to the annual special collection in May 2018.
