Community clean up in April in Butler


BUTLER — The village of Butler has designated April “community clean-up month” and residents are being asked to think about what they can do to make things look nicer.

Mayor Ken Kinley said people should ask: “What can I do to make my residence much nicer this year?”

The village is placing dumpsters at the village garage on Traxler St. on April 23 and 24, and this is when people can dispose of items they have gathered in their clean-up sessions.

“If we all do our share, it will tell those visiting this spring and summer that we love our village and are proud to be part of a great place to live,” said Kinley.

People should also look around and see if they can spot an empty lot or building that might need to be cleaned up, he said.

Certain items cannot be taken to the dumpsters. They are:

Liquids: obsolete chemicals, paints, pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers.

Lead acid batteries.

Tires.

Medical/infectious/bio hazard waste.

Appliances.

Radioactive waste.

Yard waste or any contaminated dirt/soil.

Asbestos.
