HANNIBAL, NY – Residents of Hannibal are encouraged to clean up their lawns this weekend.
Any leaves, stray branches, brush, cuttings or anything that grows are welcome to be bagged and placed curbside. Any color garbage bags are acceptable.
On May 6 crews will be out picking up the bags free of charge.
Crews will be out from 7 a.m. until “however long it takes to pick up everything,” said Hannibal Mayor Fred Kent.
The Arbor Day cleanup in Hannibal has been hosted for about six years, but hasn’t always had a great turn out.
“This year, we hit the bricks a little harder,” said Mayor Kent.
The mayor’s hope is that at least half the houses in Hannibal will take advantage of this service.
The event also coincides with Hannibal’s Village Garage Sale weekend.
Garage sales will be hosted all over the village on both Saturday and Sunday.
The idea is that since people will already be outdoors and out and about, they’ll have a chance to utilize this great free service.
