Special city-wide trash pickup begins Monday
It’s spring cleaning time in New Braunfels during the April cit) -wide trash clean-up.
For some years, the city has conducted area-wide clean-ups, but last year did not. One of the recommendations from the city-appointed Keep New Braunfels Beautiful committee was to re-institute the city-wide clean-up.
“Pride starts with the individual,” committee member Jan Kennady told Council last November. “We have to start with the homes."
She said if the city provides a way to get rid of some of the extra trash, it would help eliminate the illegal dumping of trash along the roadside.
During the 1981 clean-up, Kennady said, 1,151,760 pounds of trash were gathered.
City Manager Joe Michie told Council March 25 that instead of having street crews work overtime on weekends to pick up the extra garbage, they will follow the regular sanitation crews on Mondays and Tuesdays in April, beginning Monday.
“We are getting away from the costly situation of running crews on Saturday and Sunday," Michie said.
It would substantially reduce our cost for pick-up and will accomplish the same purpose — to get the
stuff cleaned up."
Michie said the trash pick-up is "for people who want to clean up their yard, clean out their garage, this is what we’re after. What we are not talking about is old automobiles."
Street crews will pick up wood items, old dog houses, ice boxes, freezers, lawn chairs, and general lawn items. They won’t pick up old cars, trucks, car bodies, motors, frames, transmissions, boats, tree trunks, or stumps.
All limbs should be tied in bundles of no more than IO limbs no longer than four feet.
Every thing should be in the yard or on the driveway next to the street by 7:30 a.m. the day of the pick-up.
For those who want to get rid of items the street crews won’t pick up, the city-county landfill is offering free admission on April 13, 20, and 27. Residents must show proof of city residency (a driver’s license, voter registration» between8:30a.m. and3:30p.m.
Only pickup trucks and small utility trailers can carry items into the landfill.

Airport plan to include
The Capital Area Planning Council and the Alamo Area Council of Govemmnts have been awarded a federal grant to devlop an airport system plan for the Austin-San Antonio Corridor.
While the study will be conducted in the context of all 22 counties of the Counils of Governments, the primary focus will be on Williamson, Travis, Hays, Bexar, Comal and Guadalupe counties.
Immediate, short-term needs will be addressed, and a long range plan of action for establishing and maintaining a regional system of airports will be devloped. The aviation system that presently serves the study area consists of 25 general aviation airports, two air carrier airports, and three active military installations.
The final draft of the study design has been completed and the Federal Aviation Administration has approved the project.
