It's that time of year again, to rid your home and garage of all that junk you've been meaning to throw out.
The city of Wausau starts its large item pick-up Monday and continues through next Friday. Workers will pick up large items only, including carpets, furniture and mattresses.
This is not an opportunity to get rid of trash or small household items.
Examples of large items which will be picked up include: bathroom fixtures, carpeting, cabinets and counter tops, tables, hot water heaters, large pieces of furniture, grills, large metal items, lawn mowers (gas and oil removed), small engines, pianos, pool tables, sinks, mattresses and sofas.
Items which will not be picked up include: clothing, blankets, vacuum cleaners, water hoses, luggage, toys, televisions, refrigerators, air conditioners, microwaves, stoves, washers, dryers, freezers, dishwashers, vending machines, computers, water purifiers, dehumidifiers, tires, garbage, brush and yard waste.
Florescent light bulbs, batteries, and hazardous materials can be taken to the Marathon County Clean Sweep/Hazardous Waste program by appointment only. Call 715-446-3101 ext. 100 to make an appointment.
