Town’s annual Spring Clean Up Day changing day and location

Coupeville’s Spring Clean Up Day will get a new day and location this year.

Usually the event is held the first Saturday in April at the town shop and it causes a backup of traffic down Main Street, said Mayor Molly Hughes.

So this year, the town has decided to move the four garbage bins to the municipal parking lot located off Alexander Street by the Community Green.

The only problem, Hughes said, is that the Coupeville Farmers Market holds its opening day the first Saturday in April.

So, Spring Clean Up Day will be held one week earlier 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 25. It’s only open to Coupeville residents.

The town will accept large items such as furniture, mattresses and hoses; yard waste such as branches under 2 inches, leaves and grass; wood items such as construction waste; and wood furniture and metal items such as bikes, fencing, scrap metal and swing sets.

The town will not accept construction waste from contractors, regular household garbage or toxic items such as paints, chemicals, gasoline or motor oil.

Residents must bring a copy of their water bill and identification showing their address to verify residency.
