The city of Lincoln is grateful to Area Disposal Service for providing this service.

Residents are encouraged to check with and assist disabled or shut-in neighbors who may need to dispose of materials but may be unable to do so themselves.

If residents have questions about the cleanup, they may contact Area Disposal at 217-735-5881.

The second cleanup day will be May 5, when residents who live east of Union Street may bring their items to the fairgrounds.
