Spring clean up is set to be conducted in the City of Owensboro. It's for larger items that won't fit into your garbage bins. Take a look at the schedule and what CAN & CAN'T be put curbside for FREE during collection days.


Do you have some larger items that just won't fit into your toter? The City of Owensboro is providing a service to help with your neighborhood alliance. If you have some older furniture, appliances, toilets, carpets, mattresses or any bulky items that are on the "approved" list, this is the time to take care of business.
