Mason City flood large-item pickup plans announced

MASON CITY — The city of Mason City has announced the plans on providing the pickup of flood-damaged items after last weekend’s flooding.

Interim City Administrator Kevin Jacobson says pickup of the items will start next week and will be on the same day as normal garbage and recyclable pickup takes place. For example, if your garbage is picked up on Tuesday, your flood damaged items will be picked up on Tuesday as well.

All flood-damaged items need to be placed at the curb for pickup by the normal garbage pickup time. Jacobson says items such as carpet, appliances, hot water heaters, washers, dryers, computers, televisions, sheet rock, water-damaged furniture and other household items should be set at the curb.

Items such as paints and chemicals should not be set out, and city crews will not pick those items up. Those should be boxed up and taken to the Landfill of North Iowa for safe disposal.
