City to begin Brown Bag Fridays

Posted: Thursday, March 29, 2012

Since spring is just around the corner, warm weather has many Huntington residents outdoors cleaning their yards of debris collected over the winter and sprucing up their landscaping and gardens. The Huntington Street Department wants to help the residents of Huntington keep their properties clean by helping them get rid of the waste.

The street department has instituted “Brown Bag Fridays,” says street superintendent Bob Caley. City residents are asked to place their yard waste in the brown lawn refuse bags and place them near the street. To have the bags picked up; residents must call the street department at 356-4720. Callers will be asked for their address and the approximate number of bags. The bags will be picked up on Fridays only. Residents are not to place their refuse in the trash receptacles or place the bags out before Friday.

Residents that have a normal trash pick-up day on Friday are asked to place the lawn refuse bags away from the trash can so the one-armed truck can pick up the can without moving the brown bags.
