The City of Auburndale has historically held this event in a targeted neighborhood during one week in April. This year, given the school closures and number of citizens at home, the Auburndale City Commission has extended the Spring Clean-Up for the entire month of April. During this time, CITY RESIDENTS are offered free pickup services for a number of special items.
How it works: During Spring Clean-up Month, place special items at curbside, divided into separate piles depending on the type of debris. These piles need to be placed at least 5 feet away from any mailboxes, trees, fences, and utility poles.
Please separate piles into the following categories.
Yard Trash: limbs, clippings, bagged trimmings, etc.
Furniture: couches, chairs, bedding, etc.
Construction/Demo: tile, concrete, carpet, non-wooden fencing, etc.
White Goods: refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, etc.
Tires: with or without rims
Lumber: framing lumber, wood fencing, dock wood, siding, etc.
Motor oil, batteries, paint, electronics, and hazardous waste will NOT be collected! To dispose of those products, contact Polk County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility at (863) 284-4319.
For more information, please contact the Sanitation Division at 863-965-5511. Stay safe and we appreciate your participation during Spring Clean-Up Month!
