Street Sweeping Schedule

The next street sweeping is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov 17, 2015 in our neighborhood. Be sure to keep your vehicles and trash cans off the street, especially that day. Actual day they perform this service may vary due to weather.

MWS (Metro Water Services) conducts street sweeping to remove debris from our streets and prevent it from entering our storm drains. Storm drains lead straight to the nearest creek or stream and are meant for rainwater only. The street sweeping schedule is posted on the Nashville Water Service site, in the “NEWS” section, and updated monthly.

For questions about this schedule, please contact Metro Water Services Customer Services Center (615) 862-4600 Option 4.

Garage Sale Tips (for 1st Sat in May)

The Bradford Hills neighborhood -wide garage sale is planned for the first Sat in May again this year.  (Sat, May 2) Several other nearby neighborhoods will be holding sales the same day, so we hope to build on the traffic.

Here are some random comments that you may be interested in:

Just some curiosity. When you are shopping yard sales, what makes you stop and look or makes you continue driving? Do
You look for signs or just look online at sites for advertisement. What wording most catches your eyes? What intrigues you about a sale and what turns you off? Also, if you went to a sell and they were selling waters would you buy one?

Thanks!!

  • Jennifer Mumphery The way the items are organized and correct grammar in the wording on the signs are huge selling points for me.

  • Jennifer Mumphery Yes! If it appears the items are well taken care of from the street I’m more inclined to stop. If things are just piled up it looks like junk.

  • Mariah Vitier Do you prefer items individually priced or if a sign read “dress shirts: $xx” etc?
  • Jennifer Mumphery As long as it’s signed with a price it’s great. I love a good yard sale haha.

  • Jody Ridenour McQuiston Probably won’t stop if clothes aren’t hung. Definitely would buy bottle of water, unless it’s cheaper at the store. Though I mostly look for misc more than clothes, household items and such.

  • Loran Roycraft Hill It’s actually quite rare that I would find something in my exact size I stop for furniture and well taken care of kids items and also ceramic pots and such if it’s all just thrown in the grass I probably won’t stop

  • Jill Regenia Hamilton Signs are a must!!!

    Sometimes on the water….depends on how much.
  • Annette Fitzpatrick Savage If it looks organized, and I’m more likely to stop
    if there’s a lot of stuff. I’d probably buy a water.
  • Missi Brown Emmert We always make great money at our yard sales but we take a lot of time to prepare. All clothing is hung, everything organized and priced. We advertise in the Mt. Juliet Chronicle and put signs up all over our neighborhood. We have never made under $500 and the most was $2,000. It takes a lot of work but if done right you can make a ton of money.
  • Amanda Baker I have been checking FB pages for yard sales. I stop if it looks organized, clean, and if there is furniture. Nothing I hate more than getting out and finding dirty piles of junk! Lol!
    • Amanda Cotton Willoughby Big ticket items at the front with no prices on them. That’s when I stop. LOL
