New Strawn city-wide cleanup will be held in conjunction with Coffey County’s designated cleanup week on Oct. 16-20th. Residents are encouraged to place items curbside by Monday, Oct. 16. Annual sewer maintenance is also occurring during the week, so city employees will pick up items as time permits throughout the week. Items should be separated into the following piles: brush (no longer than four feet, tied into eight-inch bundles), furniture and treated lumber; metal and regular trash. Items that will NOT be picked up include tires, batteries, paint, hazardous materials and any containers with liquid in them. City employees will only pick up items within city limits.
