436 Walnut Court

It is important to keep the abandoned houses in Springfield looking as good as possible. If you are interested in mowing around a particular house, please sign up here. This way, we are less likely to forget one, and we are going to avoid some duplicate work.

Please only one thread per address.

House at the end of Walnut Court. You will need a key for the gate.

mowed, trash picked up. There's a pile of filled trash bags at the curb that needs to be picked up....as well as the other pile of yard waste and debris. Why is the city not picking this up on trash day?

Whomever filled them, most are way too heavy for me to lift. so you need a pick up to get them.

If they're too heavy to lift then that may be why they're still there. Garbage containers/bags can't weigh more than 40lbs for the City to pick them up.

that's exactly what I figured to be the issue...but the city also never picked up the yard wasted piled up either.

I don't think they pick up in front of empty/condemned houses.

They should, because the waste fees are still paid via the taxes whether the property is vacant/condemned or not. Call in a CARE request about a missed pickup.
