Alexandria residents who receive city refuse collection are eligible to receive a spring cleanup pickup in April.
Residents are encouraged to clear out household clutter and place unwanted bulky trash and metal items at the curb on their neighborhood collection date. The city is divided into four collection zones, and each zone is assigned a specific Saturday.
