(Seguin) -- Get ready to do some spring cleaning. The City of Seguin is again offering residents the opportunity to get rid of those unwanted items. The 2018 Spring Clean-Up Day is scheduled for Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon.

Morgan Ash, the city's public information officer says Seguin residents are encouraged to bring unwanted items from around the home for free disposal at the Seguin Events Complex (Coliseum) parking lot. Ash says city employees and Waste Connections personnel will also be on hand to make the process easy by being available to unload vehicles and trailers.

Ash says the event continues to grow with more and more residents taking advantage of the service.

"I believe the last couple of clean-ups -- we have had such a great turnout that we ended up having to close down a little early. We couldn't even keep going to until the usual noon ending day and that's because if all of our garbage trucks and all of our other collection facilities there fill up, then we just can't take anymore. So we ask that people get up early on Saturday and get in line with their stuff to drop off as early as possible," said Ash.

While most items will be accepted, there are some limits.

"Any kind of hazardous materials or chemicals, wet paint, we can't accept that. Brush, limbs, so any kind of vegetation, usually that needs to be set out for our brush department in front of your homes. Any type of construction materials, fences, parts of sheds, we can't take that. Any kind of tractor, bike or ATV tires, we're not accepting those. We really can't accept tires from local businesses," said Ash.

Paper shredding will also be available as a free service at the event. Residents are encouraged to bring any documents containing sensitive information for secure on-site shredding and disposal.

In order to participate, residents will be asked to show a photo ID or utility bill to prove they reside within the city limits.
