Spring Clean-up - Monday, April 16 and Tuesday, April 17


The City of Johnston has a variety of events planned throughout April to help you dust off winter while improving your home, neighborhood and community. Think of all the things you would like to get rid of during an intense spring cleaning: mattresses, couches, tables, chairs, windows, doors, books, old dishes or box springs. The city-wide Spring Clean-up Event allows residents to dispose of large household items on their regular trash collection day at no additional charge. All smaller items must be placed in bags or boxes.

Please place your items on the curb by 6 a.m. on April 16 (if you live west of 86th Street) or 17 (if you live east of 86th Street). Collection may last through April 18 due to the volume of the collection.
