SPECIAL COLLECTIONS

 
We hold an Annual Event for residents to dispose of their chemicals, paints, light bulbs, lead acid batteries, and grill propane tanks safely.  We expect to host two Collections, one in each County, each year.  Both collections are open to all our district residents. 
You can view the dates for our collections as well as a list of what will and will not be accepted by clicking the link below.

COMMUNITY CLEANUP COLLECTIONS

Community Cleanup Collections are held in Communities throughout the two Counties during the spring/summer months, with most accepting tires, appliances,  carpeting, large toys, old furniture and general large junk items.
 
NO… mattresses, box springs, electronics, paints, liquids, hazardous waste materials, household garbage, construction debris, grass clippings, tree trimmings or ammunition will be accepted.  
 
Collections are for residents only, no items will be accepted from haulers or businesses.  Proof of residency (Jefferson/Belmont Counties) is required.
 
View the schedule for the Jefferson County Community Cleanups here.

We advise residents when purchasing any new large electronics to always ask  if they have a “take back” program, especially televisions since the old tube style are now the most difficult to get rid of locally and we must share the cost with residents for their disposal.

We will be accepting electronics at Special Electronic Collections held in each County.  Follow us on Facebook where times and locations of all scheduled events are posted.
