West Lafayette to hold spring clean program

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Spring cleaning will be easier for West Lafayette residents next week. The city is holding a spring clean program to help people dispose of unwanted household items.

Next Friday and Saturday West Lafayette will have its third Donation Days at Morton Community Center.

Goodwill will provide a trailer for residents to donate unwanted household items. On May 9 the Goodwill truck will be on location from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. On May 10 Goodwill, e-recycling and the shred-it truck will be on location from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Residents can also have their unwanted items picked up at home by calling the Lafayette Goodwill at 765-449-0407.

The city said it’s an easy way to keep streets clean and a convenient way for people to get rid of certain items.

“It’s a service that we want to offer. We think if people would take advantage of it, it would help them manage their issues in terms of what they want to throw away. If you’ve got something good that you think is reusable, absolutely give it to Goodwill,” said Rick Walker, West Lafayette neighborhood resource team code supervisor.

Next Saturday residents will also be able to have documents shredded and electronics recycled.

Documents can be shredded at no cost. However, depending on its size, residents may be charged for the recycling of an electronic good.

West Lafayette will also place roll-off containers throughout the city for students and residents to use. The containers will be placed at the following locations from May 2-18:

  • Vine at Pearl Street
  • Vine at Stadium Avenue
  • Williams at Chauncey Avenue
  • Lutz at Salisbury Street
  • Grant at Harrison Street
  • Garfield at Evergreen Street

  • Refrigerators, freezers and humidifiers
  • Explosives and hazardous waste
