Spring Clean Up!

Long-time Elmhurst residents know the annual spring clean-up ritual well. Cleaning out garages and basements. The slow build up of random pieces of furniture, toys and more on the parkways in front of Elmhurst homes. As residents prepare to observe the annual event, LW Reedy would like to offer additional options for recycling unwanted items that typically end up on the parkway.
