• Smyrna will have its annual Spring Clean-up from April 15 to April 26. There will be only two weeks of pickups, according to the town’s web site.

Town crews will pick up all items except demolition debris, tires and hazardous materials (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners contain Freon and will not be picked up), according to the web site.

Items to be picked up must be set at curbside.

The clean-up is designed for items normally not picked up by the trash contractor such as items from yard cleaning, swing sets, fence posts, trees/brush, carpet, etc. not meeting the four feet/fifty pound limit.

Furniture and appliances should still be placed out with normal household trash for pick up by the trash contractor.
