Clean up your home, garage and yard and dispose of all those items you don’t need during the Antigo curbside cleanup days.
The event is intended for large, bulky items, not the small items that can be disposed of in the trash receptacle during weekly pickup. Also, officials recommend residents consider donations to charitable organizations.
