The City of Bellevue’s Spring Clean-up will be held May 10 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Two street department locations, one at 29th Avenue and Hancock Street, and the other at 8252 Cedar Island Road, will accept solid waste. The following items will be accepted:

• Household furniture.

• Lawn furniture.

• Storm doors and windows.

• Major appliances, although no televisions or computer monitors will be accepted.

• Broken toys, bicycles, wagons, etc.

• Bed springs and mattresses.

• Construction material.

• Automotive parts.

• Propane tanks.

• Electronics, including computer hardware.

The following items will not be accepted:

• Tires, boats, campers, televisions and computer monitors.

• Trees and brush.

• Leaves and yard waste, which have their own weekly pickups.

• Automotive oil (which can be recycled on regular garbage pick-up days).

• Paint and hazardous wastes, which can be dropped at the regional household hazardous waste collection facility. Call 402-444-7465, or visit underthesink.org for more information.

Trees and brush will be accepted from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Old Landfill site on Cedar Island Road near Rose Lane. The location will also accept trees and brush from 8 a.m. to noon May 31.

Residents will be asked to unload solid waste directly into a Papillion Sanitation compactor truck, or near a roll-off container. All other items will be separated.

Residents are asked not to bring items that may be bagged and left curbside for regular trash collection.

All children must remain in vehicles while in the dump areas.

Clean-up participation is restricted to Bellevue residents, and residency must be proved by producing the previous month’s MUD bill, which will show a trash collection fee.

Residential items only are allowed. Commercial and business items will not be accepted, and no vehicle larger than a pickup truck will be permitted unless by prior arrangement.

Senior citizens and persons with disabilities who meet low-income guidelines can arrange to have items picked up May 12 by calling 402-682-6602 by noon on May 9.

For more information, call 402-293-3126 or by emailing kathy.austin@bellevue.net.

A food item donation to the Bellevue Food Pantry is requested for each load dumped at either site.
