We welcome clarification from any Icon view with more information. We spotted this plate on a blue Honda CR-V in Ada. (The monthly renewal sticker confirmed our birthday theory.)

Dumpsters set up May 18-29 for village spring cleanup

Bluffton residents may start preparing for spring cleaning. The village will have dumpsters at the Spring Street recycling center available from May 18 to 29, according to Jamie Mehaffie, village administrator.

"This will provide residents with 10 days including two weekend to take items to the center," Mehaffie told Bluffton council members on Monday. Household hazardous waste materials are not permitted to be disposed of during this period.

Some additional village clean up is on the schedule, says Mehaffie. "Student athletes from the Bluffton University men's and women's soccer teams will put in a week of service in mid-April. Working with their coach, Rick Nussbaum, soccer members will weed and spread mulch in the playground areas of village parks.

Several other items were on Monday's agenda. Icon viewers may open the council packet at the bottom of this story to view Monday's agenda.
