'Spring Clean Up' trash collection in last week

Niagara Gazette — Got garbage? This is the last week of the Spring Clean Up trash removal, the Department of Public Works has announced.

Residents are asked to place their trash/rubbish/debris at the same location as garbage for collection. The service runs through Friday. Pick-ups will coincide with Niagara Falls residents’ scheduled garbage pick-up days.

Trash/rubbish/debris can include fallen tree limbs, fallen leaves, brush or brush trimmings, carpeting, ashes, small appliances, mattresses, box springs, couches and sofas. All yard waste must be bundled/bagged: leaves are to be bagged and brush/branches bundled/tied into 4-foot lengths.

Residents should separate recyclable appliances away from regular garbage collection and trash/rubbish/debris.

Recyclable appliances include refrigerators and freezers with doors removed, washers and dryers, stoves, hot water tanks and air conditioning units — and also two tires per household, unmounted. Call Modern Disposal at 1-800-330-7107 with questions on recyclable appliances.

Following the Spring Clean Up period, residents are allowed one bulk item to be collected weekly at the time of their scheduled garbage collection.

No electronic waste can be placed curbside. Electronic waste can be dropped off at the New Road Corporation Yard, located at 1785 New Road, on the second Thursday of every month from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For more information, contact the Department of Public Works at 286-4940 or 286-4840, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
