Metal Pick-Up Day in Alexandria still on for tomorrow; another date added

The city of Alexandria's Metal Pick-Up Day that is scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, will still take place.

The city has fielded quite a few calls from people who won't be able to get the metal to the curb because of all the snow that has fallen lately.

Because of that, the city plans to hold another Metal Pick-Up Day on Tuesday, May 21.

This free event is offered to residents who live within the city limits who have metal objects they want to get rid of. They can place the items on their boulevard and have them carried away at no charge. Note: Televisions and computers will not be accepted.

To participate, you must fill out an agreement form that has been printed in the Echo Press and the Lakeland Shopping Guide, and mail or deliver it to Alexandria City Hall, 704 Broadway, Alexandria MN 56308.

Telephone requests for this free service will not be accepted.

Only residential customers living in the city limits are eligible. The service is not available for commercial customers.
