‘Load Up Your Pickup’ events scheduled for October

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

The Carroll County Solid Waste Authority (CCSWA) invites you to participate in the free “Load Up Your Pickup” event during the month of October. This event is part of the Great Arkansas Cleanup, which is co-sponsored by the Carroll County Quorum Court, Keep Arkansas Beautiful and Keep Carroll County Beautiful.

Thanks to a grant-in-aid from the quorum court these events will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in three rural areas of the county:

Saturday, Oct. 14 - Oak Grove Ball Field

Saturday, Oct. 21 - Lake Leatherwood Park

Saturday, Oct. 28 - Osage Baptist Church

Accepted items include old appliances, old furniture, mattresses and springs, up to 10 tires per family (small truck and passenger tires only and without rims), electronics, sinks, toilets and bathtubs. Freon will be removed from appliances free of charge.

Items that are not accepted include yard waste (limbs, leaves, grass clippings, etc.), hazardous waste, household garbage, commercial waste and agricultural waste. Out of county waste will not be accepted either.

Residents in these areas are encouraged to spread out on the county roads and gather roadside litter to bring to these collection events. This event has been successful because of the many volunteers and participants who join us at the locations and assist in directing traffic and off-loading vehicles.

Call Gary Gray at CCSWA at 479-253-2727 or 870-423-7156 for more information.
