As part of these efforts, the city has designated Saturday, June 7 as the “Great Trash Off for the City of Kenedy.”
The event, one of two annual events, gives Kenedy households an opportunity to get rid of bulky trash items at no additional cost.
Residents can get details about the upcoming “Trash Off” by calling 583-2230.
The city also reminds residents that bulky items can be disposed of at any time in a large trash container at the waste transfer station located at 300 Mourning Street at no cost to local residents, although households are limited to one visit to the container each month. The container is located near the intersection of Goff and Mourning Streets which is about half a mile east of the downtown area.
To take items to the container, residents with an active water account can pick up a voucher from City Hall by showing proof of residency, such as a water bill. The vouchers can be picked up Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
After the voucher has been filled out, city staff will check available space in the container and if space is available, the resident can then take the bulky items to the container for disposal.
“The city and our citizens look forward in keeping our community clean,” said Lanny Holland, City of Kenedy building official.
