During the week of March 27-31 residents within the city limits of Booneville can rid themselves of unwanted items by simply leaving them with their normal trash.

They can do so without paying someone to haul them away to paying to dump them, provided they adhere to a few rules.

To be eligible for pickup, all metal items must be placed in a separate pile and all sofas, recliners, mattresses, furniture and like items should be placed in an additional separate pile.

As in the past, because the service in Booneville is a city project, city residents are the only ones eligible to have items hauled away, which will occur on residents’ normal trash collection day.

No tires will be picked up. Other items ineligible for the service include boards, rocks, bags of concrete, shingles, and bricks or blocks.

Also ineligible are brush and limbs, which are picked up on a normal schedule by city workers.

City Hall officials say no containers will be returned following the cleanup.
