Hamburg Township is springing into the season with a community-wide clean-up day event later this month to coincide with Earth Day weekend.

The popular event is returning on Saturday, April 23rd from 9am to 3pm after a two-year hiatus, as it had to be put on hold due to the pandemic. Township officials have said it’s always been a very popular event that not only helps people get rid of stuff that’s been building up but also addressed blight issues and keep items off dirt roads and dead-end roads.

A variety of services will be offered including a scrap metal drive, dumpsters for large household items and scrap, compost bins, and secure document shredding. No construction materials, hazardous waste, household waste, paint cans or large items that cannot be hand-loaded into dumpsters will be accepted.

The event will take place at Manly Bennett Park West, at the disc golf entrance off Merrill Road. Volunteers are being sought. Details are available on the township website.
