Latimer encourages you to keep your property clean, so, to help with this, we hold a City-Wide clean up day in April every year.  Dump your stuff on the curb and the City crews will pick it up, some fees may apply.  There are some rules and restrictions so please check with the city office as certain items cannot be picked up.
