Los Osos’ Annual Clean-Up Week is slated for March 1-5, as Mission Country Disposal offers the special promotion only for residential single-family homes.
According to a company flyer, for no additional charge people can put out up to six, 32-gallon trash cans or the equivalent in plastic garbage bags, boxes or bundles, on their regular pick up day that week.
Cans or bundles can’t weigh more than 75 pounds nor be over 4-feet long. Your garbage must be in the regular garbage cans, recycling or green waste haulers and excess garbage left out will be left on the curb, the company flyer explained.
They will haul off boxes with the trash, so if you want to save them, you must place a note on the pile asking the driver not to take it.
They will pick up bulky items, too but you must call them at least a week ahead of time and it won’t be free. Limitations are that the items must be on the curb when the 2-man crews come down your street. Among the items they will pick up for a fee are: TVs, heaters, water heaters, couches, washers, dryers, small appliances, chairs, box springs, mattresses, refrigerators, overstuffed chairs, and car tires and rims (limit of four). You must call 805-927-4995 a week ahead of time to arrange pick up of bulky items and to see how much it will cost you. Same day calls will not be accepted, the company said.
The Clean-Up Week is for single-family residences and not apartments, condos, or commercial customers.
Spring Clean-Up Week is also March 1-5 in Morro Bay for single-family homes.
