’Tis the season!
No, not THAT season. It’s time to get ready for Fall Large Item Pickup in Clear Lake.
The City of Clear Lake will hold its fall opportunity to dispose of large items that cannot be discarded through their weekly garbage service Monday through Thursday, Oct. 15-18.
The Large Item Pickup map will appear in the Clear Lake Mirror-Reporter on Wednesday, Oct. 10, listing the dates the City will pick up in each area of the city and the items that will and will not be picked up.
City residents can have old appliances and/or electronic items picked up during the large item event for a cost of $15 an item.
