The city of Peabody and its trash collection contractor, Waste Management, have selected the second week in May as spring cleanup week.
“We usually try to schedule the citywide garage sale the weekend before cleanup week,” Deputy City Clerk Stephanie Ax said. “That way, individuals with left-over merchandise they don’t want to deal with again can just box it up and set it at the curb.”
The Peabody Gazette-Bulletin sponsors the annual citywide garage sale. The newspaper will print a map of all the sale locations and publish the map in the Peabody Gazette-Bulletin, Marion County Record, and Hillsboro Star-Journal. The event will be advertised in the Wichita Eagle.
Participants also will receive maps to pass out to garage sale customers and extra maps will be available with local merchants.
Entry forms will be available at the Peabody City Office, at Peabody State Bank, and Peabody Hardware and Lumber. The charge to be included in the citywide garage sale is $12.50, payable in advance.
Entries and payment will be due at the Peabody Gazette-Bulletin office or the city building by noon on April 27 to be included on the map of garage sale locations.
