Spring is in full swing, and for many residents, it's time to clear garages and yards of unwanted junk.
The Hayden Chamber of Commerce will help residents spring clean with its annual Clean Up Day from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at several sites in town.
A burning pit for wood scraps, tree limbs, yard waste and old furniture will be at Wagner Equipment, 1299 W. Jefferson Ave.
Bear River Valley Co-op, 193 E. Jefferson Avenue, will take old car and truck tires for a $2 charge.
Vehicle batteries may be dropped off at Napa Auto Parts, 815 W. Jefferson Ave., and A-1 Auto, 106. E. Jefferson Ave.
Dumpsters for trash and old appliances will be at the Hayden Mercantile, 655 E. Jefferson Ave.
Refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners must have professional tags or paperwork verifying that Freon has been removed. Most air-conditioning and heating companies will remove the chemical.
Recyclables such as paper products, plastics, glass and cans always may be dropped off at bins at the Hayden Mercantile.
Materials that cannot be dropped off during Clean Up Day include paint, pesticides and most other liquids. Residents with questions about other items should call Waste Management at 879-2400.
Volunteers are needed to help unload and sort items at the disposal bins. Anyone interested in volunteering should call Vicki Morgan at 276-1710.
