The Town of Farmville will hold its Spring Cleanup on Monday, April 16.

“Town residents are advised to have all items at the curbside by 7:30 a.m. on April 16,” according to a press release. “This cleanup provides pickup of items not normally picked up, such as; furniture, appliances, carpet, bedding and building materials. Any loose items must be boxed or bagged to be collected. Items must be in a container that is to be thrown away.”

As an example, the town says, “if you put small tree limbs in an old garbage can, the can will be thrown away with the limbs. If you set it out, it will be thrown away. Containers must be strong enough to handle the weight of its contents. Rocks, cement block, brick and loose dirt will not be picked up.”
