City Reminds Residents of Trash Guidelines

City of Russell LogoAs the seasons change, fall cleaning takes place and you mow your lawn for the last time this year, City of Russell officials remind residents to follow the city's trash pick-up guidelines.

Russell Public Works Director Arlyn Unrein says the city issues citizens polycarts, or specially designed trash carts, and unless a resident has a previous agreement with the city or was grandfathered in, those polycarts are the only acceptable trash container to put out for pick-up.

Unrein says there are a couple options for residents that have excess trash that needs to be picked up.

Folks with questions can also give Unrein or Street Department Supervisor Jim Vlcek a call at the City Building.

Also, Russell sanitation crews will not pick-up yard waste, which consists of grass clippings and leaves. However, those items can be disposed of at the Russell landfill free of charge.
