The city of Dublin is making plans to do a little spring cleaning in an effort to beautify the city. 

Beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, the city lot will be open and available for residents to bring their brush, trash and debris. 

"Spring is just around the corner and there are several lots and places around that really need work," said City Administrator Nancy Wooldridge. "We're hoping that by opening up our lot and providing a place to legally dump trash, brush and other debris we are encouraging those property owners to come out and be a part of the effort."

The city will provide two roll-away dumpsters at the lot located at the corner of Norton and Harris streets. City employees will be accepting loads from Dublin residents only, Wooldridge said. Residents will need a copy of their most recent water bill and a photo ID.

There are a number of things the city cannot take including rocks, dirt, tires, televisions, computer monitors, paint, asbestos, oil and gasoline, hazardous materials, batteries, anything with freon and no liquids. For a full list of items, contact Dublin City Hall at 445-3331.

While the dumpsters did cost the city to be delivered and picked up, residents will not be charged. Wooldridge said the money for the cleanup will come out of the budget.

"We really need to clean up Dublin and that takes participation from everyone," Wooldridge said. "The city benefits from cleanups like this one and events like the St. Paddy's celebration next weekend. We're working toward a better city and a better future for residents."
