Spring cleaning projects slated May 14-17 in Grandview Heights

Grandview Heights city employees soon will begin a number of spring cleaning projects. Residents are encouraged to contact the respective department for more information.

* Bulk items will be collected free of charge May 14-17, on regular refuse collection days only. Grandview Heights and Marble Cliff residents with alley pick-up service should place their items near the alley. Residents without alley pick up service should place their items at the curb.

No paint, oil, tires, car batteries, construction debris, items with refrigerant or hazardous material will be accepted.

To assist the Service Department, place small loose items inside containers for easier disposal. Separate trash and metal items, as each is taken in different trucks.

For more information, contact the Grandview Heights Service Department at 614-488-4728.

* Every Monday, from now through the end of November, Service Department crews will collect yard waste, appropriately bundled or collected in biodegradable paper bags and placed near the alley. Residents without alley pick up service should place their yard waste at the curb.

Residents are reminded to place regular refuse in covered containers or, if the refuse is in plastic bags, not to set it out until collection day to keep animals from raiding and scattering refuse.

For a copy of the rules, visit or stop by the office at 1525 Goodale Blvd.

* The Building and Zoning Department staff will inspect the exterior of homes for building, zoning and health code violations. The Residential Housing Inspection Program, initiated in 1993, is intended to maintain the exceptional condition of the housing stock and provide a positive healthful living environment for residents of Grandview Heights.

For information, contact Ron Ayres at 614-340-5242.

* Pet owners are required by City Code to pick up and dispose of any fecal matter left by their animals on any public or private property and to have in their possession, a device for this purpose.
