Abilene 2014 Fall Clean-up Set For October 9-11
If you have a bunch of brush, trees, or other items you need to get rid of, October 9-11 is your opportunity to get rid of it all for free with the annual ‘Fall Clean-up’.
‘Fall Clean-up’ runs from Thursday, October 9th through Saturday, October 11th. Hours of operation will be from 9am to 4:30pm on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday they will be open from 9am to 5pm. So, make sure to grab all of that stuff that’s taking up your lawn or garage and dump it off at the Recycling Center at 2209 Oak Street in Abilene.
From the City of Abilene’s website:
“Typically, the ERC is a drop-off point for citizens to bring almost any type of recyclable materials including plastics, glass and cardboard to bulkier items such as electronics and old appliances. However, certain items such as large-scale remodeling project materials will not be accepted. Citizens will be asked to assist in off-loading their own items.
Due to safety concerns, Oak Street will turn into a one way street with vehicles entering from South 25th Street, on Saturday, Oct. 11th. At this year’s Fall Clean, citizens may bring up to eight passenger tires without rims, free of charge. However, truck tires without rims are $6 per tire and with rims $8 per tire. Agricultural tires will be accepted without rims only for a $35 per tire service fee. No commercial or business tires will be accepted.”
