City hosts ‘permit-free garage sale weekend’

CLAREMORE —

Spring is in the air, and that means many people are taking time to spruce up their yards and homes with  large and small projects.
To help residents in their efforts to clear out the clutter and beautify their property, the City of Claremore will have a “permit-free garage sale weekend” on April 24-27.
It’s part of Spring Clean Claremore, an awareness campaign designed to create and promote events and opportunities to spruce up the community for the season.
“We hope that Spring Clean Claremore inspires all residents to collectively help beautify our great community through this annual spring cleaning blitz,” said Jill Ferenc, director of planning and development services for the City of Claremore.
Normally, a residential sale license is required for all garage and yard sales within city limits. The city provides three signs to the resident and collects a $5 license fee.
During the “permit-free garage sale weekend,” each residential sale location will be allowed to display one on-site sign and two off-site signs. Sales held during the permit-free weekend do not count against the total garage sale licenses granted for the property.
Other initiatives planned for Spring Clean Claremore include the following:
•Claremore Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event, from 8 a.m. to noon on May 31 at Claremore Expo Center.
Items accepted include household pollutants such as motor oils, oil based-paints, latex paints, pesticides, weed killers, yard-care products, household cleaners, drain openers, gasoline, batteries, solvents, corrosive liquids, flammable liquids, glues and fluorescent and CFL bulbs, compressed cylinders, fire extinguishers, Oxidizers, liquid and powders. 
A limit of 10 tires (no equipment tires) per household will be accepted. Computer and electronic equipment will be accepted for a fee.
The event is free to Claremore residents. Bring a current utility bill or receipt for proof of residency.
