Getting ready for spring clean-up days
La Vista’s annual spring clean-up days is a joint event with Papillion this year, and will take place April 25-28, 7 a.m.-5 p.m. each day at Papillion’s Public Works Department, 9909 Portal Road.

Before clean-up days is a perfect time to take a look at your property and make a plan for disposing of things that might be a safety hazard and/or a violation of city ordinance.

Some examples would be:
  • Inoperable vehicles – vehicles must be in running condition, which means no flat tires and should be properly licensed. If you have an inoperable vehicle on your property, you will be asked to have it removed.
  • Garbage, trash and waste – garbage and trash of any kind is a health hazard, so if you have any laying around your property, this is the perfect time to get rid of it!
  • General maintenance – take a look at your tree branches, they need to be 15 feet above all streets and eight feet above sidewalks. If you have tree limbs sitting around, bring them to clean-up days and they’ll be turned in to mulch!

Beginning the week of April 15, officers from the Police Department’s Special Enforcement Bureau will be traveling throughout the community looking for properties in violation of these guidelines.

Any tickets issued will not be enforced until after the clean-up days event.

Examples of items that will be accepted include: major appliances, televisions, lawn and household furniture, toys, bikes, lawn mowers, grills, mattresses as well as yard waste, leaves, motor oil and grass clippings.

Document shredding will also be available at the event. 

Tree branches and stumps of any size will also be accepted. Household batteries and vehicle batteries will also be accepted.

Electronic recycling is available this year. Items accepted will include: computers, computer monitors, mouse, stereos, speakers and printers. Computer hard drive erasing and destruction will also be offered. Television sets will not be accepted for recycling, but can be disposed with other debris on site.

Paint and household chemicals and cleaners will not be accepted, but can be dropped off at Under the Sink, 4001 S. 120th Street. Tires will also not be accepted.

Proof of residency will be required with either a valid driver’s license or a utility bill.
