Burton spring cleanup to begin next week

Posted: Updated:
BURTON (WJRT) - (05/12/14) - Burton's spring cleanup starts next week.
Things like yard waste, old furniture and even cars will be carted away for free.

"(It's) our effort to help eliminate blight," said Burton Mayor Paula Zelenko.

Zelenko said collection will occur on your regular trash day and just about anything will be picked up, except hazardous waste, liquids and railroad ties.

The items must be bundled. Bundles can be up to four feet long, but can't weigh more than 50 pounds.

Concrete, tires and even vehicles won't be picked up by trash collectors, but you can call the city's Department of Public Works, at 810-742-9230, and make arrangements that way. They will come remove those items.

Anything left at the curb after next week will get you ticketed.       

"They can be given a citation and it can go as far as district court if they don't take care of it," Zelenko said. "Any fines or anything they accumulate for not being compliant, they will go on their taxes. We'll put them right on their property taxes."
