City cleanup day scheduled May 18

It’s spring and that means spring cleanup time.

Building on their successful – actually, award-winning – partnership over the last few years, the city of Azle and Community Waste Disposal (CWD) will conduct a free city-wide cleanup event from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, May 18 at the city garage located at 470 Denver Trail. Residents may drop off brush, furniture, bulky items, appliances, metal for recycling, and small amounts of construction materials from do-it-yourself projects.

CWD will be on site to collect household hazardous waste such as paints, chemicals, cleaners, used motor oil and batteries, along with E-waste, including computers, printers, electronic devices ,and old television sets. You can also drop off used tires, and a document shredder will be on site to shred sensitive documents.

Pre-sort your materials as much as possible to help keep traffic moving and allow staff to work as efficiently as possible.

This is a free event for Azle residents and proof of Azle residency will be required in the form of your utility bill and driver’s license. Items not accepted include ammunition, asbestos, building materials, butane cylinders, explosives, medical waste, PCBs, propane cylinders, radioactive material, and smoke detectors.

Watch for more detailed information on the city website,, and in The Azle News.
