Alley sweep campaign to continue on the Southside this week

November 13, 2018

HUNTINGTON — The City of Huntington’s Public Works Department will continue its alley sweep campaign Nov. 13-15 on the Southside.

Residents living on 10th, 11th and 12th avenues between 1st and 12th streets are encouraged to set out trash in the alleys before Nov. 13. Work will also include cutting back trees and weeds from alleyways, citing vehicles that have been abandoned or don’t have proper registration, and issuing code enforcement citations for unkempt properties.

Items that will be hauled away include furniture, brush/yard waste, construction materials, appliances without Freon and dried paint cans. Items that will not be accepted include oils, liquid paint, appliances with Freon, car batteries, gas or propane tanks.

The Public Works Department has conducted alley sweeps in Fairfield, Guyandotte, Altizer, the West End and Highlawn during the past year.

For more information about the alley sweep or about how to organize one in your neighborhood, call the Public Works Department at 304-696-5903.

As a reminder, Huntington residents are still allowed one free bulky trash pickup per month. These free pickups are for bulky items that are too large to dispose of with your household garbage. Pickups can be arranged by calling the Public Works Department.
