The annual Make Danville Shine community cleanup campaign will occur in May as scheduled, but with modifications because of the coronavirus.

The campaign begins Friday, May 1, and will continue through Friday, May 29. During that time, the Public Works Department again will waive several fees and restrictions regarding yard waste, large bulk debris, tire disposal and appliance pickups.

However, no rental trailers will be available due to the coronavirus, and all household trash and small debris must be inside an approved cart.

Also, the Community Development Department has canceled its home improvement expo that has served as a kickoff event for the Make Danville Shine.

The cleanup and fix-up campaign involves simple steps that every resident and business can do, such as paint the exterior of their homes and buildings, landscape the yard, and clear their property of weeds, vines, and overgrowth.

In support of the cleanup campaign, the Public Works Department will allow oversized piles of yard waste debris and large bulk debris to be placed at residential curbsides for collection. Residents should separate the yard waste from the large bulk debris. Contractors are responsible for the disposal of debris they generate.

The department will waive the cost of tire disposal for up to four tires per household, and it will waive restrictions on construction and demolition debris if small projects done by the homeowner. Restrictions will remain in place for contractor’s debris.

The cost of appliance pickup also is waived, but an appointment is required for curbside collection. By appointment, crews will collect heavy debris such as bricks, rock and cinder blocks.

The department has produced a flyer with more information.
