Morgan County Commission Clean-up Day on April 22

Spring cleaning is probably in progress and the Morgan County Commission is offering residents help in discarding unwanted items.

Annual Clean-up Day is April 22 and residents may take castaways to district shops, according to garbage Director Ricky Brooks.

"We're hoping for a good one," said Brooks. "It's a good outlet for residents. The commissioners can offer this twice a year, and if people can hold on to that old stuff for about six months at a time, they get to dump it for free. It saves people from going to the landfill."

Each shop, except District 1, will accept items April 17-22. District 1 will receive items April 22 only from 7 a.m. to noon. The shop is on Central Avenue Southwest, immediately south of Beltline Road.

The other district shops will accept items during the week from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The schedules vary for April 22.

District 2 shop on Shull Road in Hartselle, will open from 7 a.m. to noon; District 3, from 8 a.m. to noon; and District 4 from 7 a.m. to noon.

Residents may also go to the Morgan County Regional Landfill. They must show proof of residency.

"They can dispose of unwanted items at the landfill for free all week," Brooks said. "They'll need to know what district they live in because they'll ask at the landfill."

Unacceptable items include shingles, tires, household garbage, lumber or hazardous chemicals.

Adopt-a-Mile volunteers will also clean litter from roadways.

"We're hoping all of our adopt-a-milers come out," Brooks said. "They usually do and we appreciate them for trying to keep the county looking better."
