Cleanup week for Valley City residents will be held Monday, May 9 through Friday, May 13.

Residents are encouraged to clean up, clean off and clean out their properties.  

On their regular garbage pickup day, residents should put all their garbage, including the extra, in their regular pick up spot by 7 a.m. There is no limit of bags, cans, boxes and no extra charge.

Valley City will pick up general household garbage, couches, chairs, furniture, shrubs, branches and wood. Residents should not put branches in bags or boxes. Paints and liquids can be disposed of in a dry, hardened form. Cat litter or sawdust can be used to absorb the liquid. Empty cans can be left out with the garbage, or leftover paint will be accepted at the landfill during cleanup week.

Residents can take their appliances to Truck and Auto Salvage or Valley Recycling. There may be a fee for refrigeration of freezing units with Freon.

Valley City will not pick up tires, batteries, scrap metal, grass, leaves or yard waste.

Help the garbage crews by putting garbage into boxes, bags or cans not to exceed 32 gallons, or 50 pounds.
