The City of Ripon is holding its annual Community Yard Sale at the Mistlin Sports Complex on Saturday, May 3, from 7 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

It’s also spring cleanup time in Ripon when city trucks pick up large bulky items at curbside from washers to car and truck tires without charge beginning May 1.
For the house-to-house Spring Cleanup the maximum size of a pile allowed at curbside is five feet square by 12 feet long equaling about 300 square feet that cannot be left in any alleyway. The pick-up service is for residential customers only and no commercial discards will be allowed.
Other acceptable items include bicycles, carpet remnants, couches, dishwashers and microwaves, doors, dressers, mattresses, non pressurized fire extinguishers, lawn mowers, scrap metal, stoves, and ovens, tables and chair, televisions, computer monitors, toilets, sinks, tubs vehicle rims, water softeners and water heaters.
Those living under homeowners’ association directives have only certain streets and areas where they may leave their household items for the pick-up. All metal items for recycling such as appliances and lawn mowers must be separated from all other discarded items, according to a city spokesman.
The schedule for the city’s pick-up on the west side of Highway 99 asks that items be put on the curbsides between Thursday, May 1, and Sunday, May 4. For those living on the east side of the freeway they are asked to put their discards in front of their homes between Thursday, May 8, and Sunday, May 11.
