The City of Sallisaw will hold a “Fall Sweep” beginning Oct. 23.
City officials said all items must be curbside no later than 7 a.m. on Oct. 23.
Brush, junk and metal must be separated into separate piles. Do not stack any items near water meters, gas meters or fire hydrants. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prohibits picking up tires, batteries, oil, paint or other hazardous materials.
Officials asked, “Please do not place items curbside more than one week prior to Oct. 23. This service is only for residential customers living inside the city limits of Sallisaw only.”
Any debris left by contractors must be disposed of by the contractor. The city will not pick up debris left from any type of land clearing. City crews will go through each neighborhood only once, so it is important that all material to be picked up be at the curbside by 7 a.m. Oct. 23.
