Items that will be picked up at no cost include tires, stoves, washers, dryers, hot water heaters, dish washers, refrigerators, air conditioners, freezers, batteries and any other appliances. In order to have these items disposed of though you must call City Hall at 260-248-5100 by Oct. 18. These particular items will be picked up on Oct. 21.
