Starting promptly at 8 a.m. Saturday at the city equipment yard on South Washington Street, City of Beeville crews will be taking loads of discards for this year’s annual Spring Clean event.
In past years, vehicles and trailers started lining up before 7:30 a.m.
There will be no charge for residents who have a copy of a paid city utility bill.
And residents will be able to bring in as many loads as they can deliver to the yard that day.
Republic Services, the city’s solid waste disposal company, will have huge, roll-off dumpsters at the yard to receive the trash.
No household garbage, old tires, used oil or any paints or insecticides will be accepted. But most other large, bulky items will be accepted during the day.
That will include old furniture, old barbecue pits, old bicycles and other bulky items not normally picked up at curbside by Republic trucks.
Ronald “Buddy” Hardy has been looking for volunteer groups to help collect discarded items at the homes of elderly and disabled residents.
At the city yard, employees with the City of Beeville will be on hand with front end loaders to help residents get their discarded items into the dumpsters.
