City-County Spring Clean Up Day Saturday
By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - The annual Spring Clean Up Day for Paducah and McCracken County residents is scheduled for Saturday, April 13, from 7 am until 2:30 pm. Spring Clean Up Day is a free service, rain or shine.
The event, commonly referred to as “dump day”, is an opportunity to dispose of various types of solid waste and household hazardous waste. All residents must bring proper identification (such as a driver’s license) to verify residency. It's held at the CWI Transfer and Recycling Station on Burnett Street and on the adjacent parking lot of the Paducah Public Works facility on North 10th Street.
During the 2012 Spring Clean Up Day, 697 vehicles went through the line to dispose of more than 199 tons of household trash, white goods, and scrap metal. That tonnage is in addition to the tires, recyclables, hazardous materials, prescriptions, and ammunition collected.
To maintain traffic flow, drivers need to enter the CWI facility either from North 10th or Burnett Streets. Traffic will not be allowed to enter from North 8th or 9th Streets.
Items that will be accepted include household trash, white goods, tires, household hazardous waste, ammunition, expired or no longer needed prescription medications, and recyclables. No medical waste or commercial waste will be accepted.
Spring Clean Up Day is funded in part by a grant through the Kentucky Division of Waste Management. Partners include AES Environmental, LLC, City of Paducah, Republic Services, GPSP-Recycle Now, Liberty Tire, McCracken County, McCracken County Sheriff’s Department, McCracken County DES/EM, and Paducah Power System.
