(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.
