The clean up day program was added as part of a new one year deal the county approved with Republic Services for waste pick-up service.

The county suggested and Republic agreed to holding a clean-up day once per month rotated among the four districts in the county. In exchange, the county closed the convenience center on County Farm Road.

For the clean up days, two containers will be allotted for each of the county’s four districts on rotation.
