The Sebastian Countywide Spring Cleanup Campaign will continue this weekend in Jenny Lind and Greenwood, according to a news release.
Dumpsters will be available at the following locations on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.: Jenny Lind Loop and Gate Nine Road, the Sebastian County Road Department at 201 S. Coker St. and the Greenwood Street Department at 104 Bell Road. In addition, Greenwood residents may use Dumpsters at the Greenwood Street Department daily from Saturday through April 29 during their weeklong citywide cleanup. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
White goods, such as appliances and refrigerators, may be placed in a designated area with the county road department disposing of these items Monday following the cleanup date in each area. A separate trailer will be provided for the collection of electronics in Greenwood on Bell Road and the Public Works Building in Mansfield on their designated cleanup day. E-waste, such as computers, TVs and VCRs, will be accepted with a trailer designated for these items.
Dumpsters will be staffed at all times to ensure that only acceptable wastes are disposed in them. Unacceptable items include used oil, batteries, tires, hazardous or toxic wastes, computers, TVs, VCRs, cleaning chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, paints, liquids of any kind, yard waste, grass, leaves, brush and freon containing devices. In addition, barrels used to burn trash will not be accepted as part of the cleanup campaign.
The county has also coordinated with the Westark Collection Center for people to dispose of up to four passenger tires, without rims, at the Westark Collection Center at 601 Oak Grove Road in Van Buren. The site is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and there is no cost to dispose of up to four tires per visit at the site.
The Sebastian Countywide Spring Cleanup Campaign began April 8 and will take place on Saturdays through May 13. This cleanup is for residents only, not for commercial dumping.
