Load Up Your Pickup days scheduled for October

Friday, September 7, 2018

The 2018 “Load Up Your Pickup” events have been scheduled for October.

These events will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Oak Grove Ball Field, on Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Osage Baptist Church and on Saturday, Oct. 27, at Lake Leatherwood Park.

The Carroll County Solid Waste Authority (CCSWA) invites Carroll County residents to participate in these events free of charge. This event is a part of the Great Arkansas Cleanup, which is co-sponsored by the Carroll County Quorum Court, Keep Arkansas Beautiful and Keep Carroll County Beautiful.

Donations are accepted. This free bulky waste collection event is for Carroll County residents only.

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.

Not accepted items include: yard waste (limb, leaves, grass clippings, etc.), hazardous waste, household garbage, commercial waste and agricultural waste. Out-of-county waste will not be accepted.

Residents in these areas are encouraged to spread out on the county roads and gather roadside litter to bring to these collection events.

Volunteers are needed. This event has been successful because of the many volunteers and participants who join CCSWA at the locations and assist in directing traffic and offloading vehicles. Call Gary Gray at Carroll County Solid Waste at 479-253-2727 or 870-423-7156 for more information. CCSWA also encourages neighbors to help neighbors removed unwanted items from the yards and wants everyone to know their participation is greatly appreciated.
