Spring Clean Up ‘09 Comes to Alexandria

Wondering what to do with all that “stuff” that accumulated over the winter?  Eager to clean and purge but not up for a yard sale?  Then the City of Alexandria is ready to help you with Spring Clean Up  ’09.  An added bonus this year is metal and electronics recycling.

Starting Saturday, April 4 and continuing through Saturday, May 2nd, the City of Alexandria will provide pick up service to all city residents.

The rules:

  1. Place materials at the CURB (no alley pick-up) before 7:00am on the assigned pick-up day.
