Citizen are urged to put forth a
special effort today and Saturday
to clean their yards and alleys. Be
ginning next Monday, the wagons ol
the city street maintenance depart
ment will collect this material with
out charge to householders.
The free collection will be re
stricted to such rubbish as may ordi
narily be raked up In yards, but will
inot Include ashes, garbage or general
household rubbish. The thought is
that householders who throw dis
carded articles ot.wear or such large
articles as old gasoline stoves Into
these heaps need not expect to have
the material hauled away by the city
free of charge.
Ashes Not Moved.
On the other hand, It Is explained that
the collectors will not draw th lire) too
closely. If there i an old pair of hoe
or a tin can or two In the heap of rub
bish no objection will be made. But ashes
will not be removed on this oocaslon.
Householders are expected to have their
ashes and discarded perambulator and
other articles hauled away by men who
make thla a business.
Health Commissioner Connell Is eo-op-
eratlng In this campaign by directing his
inspectors to serve notloes In case where
householders have allowed unsanitary ac
cumulations of rubbish In their yard or
alley. In such case removal la made
compulsory and come within the proV'
Ir.c of th health department.
