JOIN US IN THE EFFORT TO CLEAN UP YOAKUM!

No call-in Necessary for Clean Up Day pick up
Community Clean Up Project scheduled for October 29th

The City of Yoakum has revised its Semiannual Cleanup Day.  During the first week of November, the following services
will be offered in an effort to assist local residents in making Yoakum a better place to live, work and play:

Free residential bulk item pick-up during the week of October 31st through November 4th

In addition to regular garbage pickup, City crews will pick up any large items placed at the curbside for its current
residential customers.  Items must be placed at the customer’s place of residence near the curbside location for regular
garbage pickup. Vacant house, vacant lots, and commercial properties will not be served.  Items will not be picked up
outside the City limits of Yoakum.

Items must be at the curb on Monday, October 31st.

Regular household garbage, commercial tires, appliances with refrigerants, paint and hazardous waste WILL NOT be
picked up.  Commercial tires, paint and hazardous waste CAN NOT be accepted at the Solid Waste Transfer Station.  A
limit of four (4) tires per household will be accepted.

There is no need to call for pick up services.

Citizens must keep limbs & brush separate from all other items to be disposed of; these will be picked up with the City’s
normal chipping/yard waste routes later in November.

As a reminder, the Solid Waste Management Facility is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:30 AM to 4:30
PM, and on Wednesdays from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM (closed from 12:00-1:00) and is also open each Saturday from 8:00 AM
to 12:00 PM.  Citizens are allowed to dump permitted items FREE OF CHARGE with the presentation of a City of Yoakum
utility bill. Appliances (without refrigerants), furniture, computers and computer accessories are accepted

October 29th will be a right-of-way clean-up program.

Citizen volunteers are asked to join in for a trash collection effort along the major thoroughfares coming into Yoakum in
an effort to beautify our community.  We are in need of volunteers to assist with the Clean Up from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.  
Clean up volunteers are asked to meet at City Hall at 10:00 AM for instructions and supplies.  Lunch will be provided at 12:
00 for all participants.  For more information or anyone interested in volunteering their time or equipment, please contact
City Hall at 293-6321.

Community involvement is a
MUST for this to be a success!
