Smith County clean-up to be held later this month
Citizens can now pick up their vouchers for the annual Smith County Wide Clean-up Event. The County Clean-up event is an opportunity for residents of Smith County to bring trash and bulky items to the Greenwood Farms Landfill for free. Smith County Environmental Crimes Unit, Precinct Constables, and Smith County Commissioners Court are working together to host the event April 11-16, 2011.
The County will provide vouchers to the public that are good for up to three cubic yards of trash per person which is equal to a full-sized truck bed. Vouchers are available to pick up at all Justice of the Peace and Constable Precinct offices or the Smith County Courthouse Annex, Commissioners Court Office.
There is a limit of one voucher per household and businesses may not participate in the voucher program.
The vouchers are good Monday-Friday, 6:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and on Saturday 6:30 a.m. to noon the week of April 11-16, 2011. The vouchers come with a map to the landfill and a list of items that the Greenwood Farms Landfill, an Allied Waste Company, cannot accept.
“We would like to thank Greenwood Farms Manager Zach Briscoe for providing us with this service every year. It is a benefit to the citizens of Smith County and helps us keep the trash off the roads and in the landfill, where it belongs,” Smith County Environmental Officer Tommy Goodman said.
Items not accepted during the County Wide Clean-up include: hazardous waste, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, gasoline, oils, paint, acid, batteries, asbestos, Freon, whole tires, refrigerators, freezers, televisions and computers.
