Geneva County Trash Amnesty Day

By  | 

GENEVA, Ala. (WTVY) -- Geneva County is giving residents an opportunity to spring clean early this year.

This weekend they're hosting the Geneva County landfill transfer station free cleanup for citizens.

It's a free opportunity for residents to throw out stuff they no longer need just to help beautify the community.

Geneva County Administrator Marietta Webster said, “Our engineer crew cleaned up the hurricane debris that had to be put out aside the road by a certain time and this gives them another opportunity to take some of it away and clean out their yards."

Geneva County hosts this cleanup every year at the landfill and it’s always the last week in April just in time for the festival on the rivers.

Geneva County Solid Waste Director Eileen Bottoms said, “Geneva, Hartford, Black our roads are a disgrace to Geneva County at this time."

This cleanup is only open to citizens and not business owners.

Although this is a free opportunity for people to dump their trash certain items won't be accepted such as batteries and toxic containers.

Tv’s, computers microwaves, etc. will be accepted for 15 dollars per load up to 700 pounds anything over that will be 21 cents per pound.

Absolutely no tires will be accepted.

Drop off will be at the Geneva County landfill on Friday from 8 am until 4 pm and on Saturday from 7 am until 2 pm.
