Drop-off and pickup services will be available starting April 21.
(Aurora, Ind.) – It's spring-cleaning time in Aurora.
Aurora’s City-Wide Clean-Up will feature drop-off and curb side pickup at no cost to residents within the city limits. The services are funded by Aurora property taxes and will be strictly limited to Aurora residents.
Drop-off services will be available Thursday, April 21 through Saturday, April 23 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Aurora Sports Complex, 787 Park Avenue.
To use the drop-off service, patrons will be asked to provide a copy of their most recent utility bill or tax bill for proof of residency. If proof of residency is not provided, you will be asked to leave and not permitted to use the dumping facilities.
Curb side pickup will run April 21 and 22.
Residents living on the north side of the city, north of Hogan Creek will be picked up on Thursday, April 21. Those on the south side of the city, south of Hogan Creek will have their items collected on Friday, April 22.
All items must be set out by the road by 6:00 a.m. the day of pickup.
A free will donation site will be set up near the drop off location where residents can donate salvageable items and pick up items. Donations will be accepted with proceeds going toward event expenses. According to a news release, the city expenses generally run around $5,000. To help ensure the event is provided at no cost to residents, the city is seeking sponsorships.
The city is seeking volunteers to lend a helping hand at the drop off location and assist in the curb side pickup. Interested volunteers may sign up at https://www.auroraparksandrec.org/community-clean-up
