Cleanup day set for Mt. Angel

The City of Mt. Angel is hosting its annual city-wide cleanup Aug. 26, giving residents a chance to dispose of yard debris, appliances and metal, items that are normally difficult to safely throw out.

Scheduled for 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot across from City Hall on E. Church St., the event is hosted by Republic Services. It is open for free to all Mt. Angel residents.

Items that can be dropped off include electronic waste such as old computers and cords, wood both treated and untreated, and yard debris including tree trunks and limbs no later than 6 inches in diameter. Also accepted are scrap metal and appliances, while units with freon such as refrigerators will require a $25 disposal charge.

Colby Kemp, the city’s Administrative Services Director, said the cleanup day “enhances the appearance and safety of The City of Mt. Angel,” especially during the summer when debris becomes a fire hazard. He said Republic Services employees will be on hand to help offload items and indicate the right bins for placing different materials.

For additional information, contact City Hall at 503-845-9291 or visit the website at  www.ci.mt-angel.or.us.
