There is usually just one time of year to get rid of unwanted clutter. But not everything you want to get rid of is accepted by spring clean-up crews.

That's why the city of Wausau is offering a program to help keep the city clean, while properly disposing of items like tires, refrigerators and mattresses.

The Neighbor 2 Neighbor Committee (N2N) works to unite neighborhoods to improve safety and enhance quality of life for Wausau residents. Their event, “Clean-it Up, Wausau!”, in its fourth year, will be held Saturday, October 5 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Some items like scrap metal, and washers and dryers will be free to recycle; however DVD players, tires, and tvs will be recycled for a fee. Light bulbs, paint, and medication are just a few of the items that will not be recycled at the event.

Drop off is near the Yard Waste Site at 105 E. Chellis Street. Proof of Wausau residency is required.
