Spring Clean Up Week is June 5-9. Also known as "Junk Week", this is the week that the Borough collects items which are not normally removed by the garbage men. Items that are NOT collected include building materials, hazardous waste, like paint and pesticides, appliances, and lawn & garden waste. Appliances and anything with a plug can be recycled at the LM dump Saturday June 3. See below for details.
Put all your stuff out on the curb on Sunday, June 4. Some people will have yard sales that weekend (June 3-4) to try to sell items before they hit the curb pile. The Borough schedule of target dates for pickup is below, but the volume of stuff affects and can change the schedule. Unless you're certain, it's best to just put everything out on Sunday.
Browsing through your neighbor's curb pile is quite OK - nobody will mind as look as you leave the area looking as good as when you got there. (In other words, don't make a mess.)
People from neighboring towns may also cruise down the street, looking for things to reuse or recycle. It's important to make sure you don't leave bikes or other items near the curb that week, just so there are no misunderstandings as to what is or isn't free for the taking.
