As the Apple and Pork Festival approaches, Clinton civic leaders are encouraging residents to take some time this weekend and clean up.
The Apple and Pork festival is next weekend and Mayor Carolyn Peters would like to see the City look its best for the tens of thousands of people that will converge on Clinton for the weekend. She says in an effort to promote cleaning up, there will be a city wide clean up which Area Disposal will have containers for resident to drop large items for free.
Mayor Peters says with the thousands of people making their way to the city, she would like to make the city look presentable and make a good impression on the people that will be walking the streets of Clinton that weekend.
The Mayor also encourages residents to obtain a recycling bin and begin recycling. It is no charge to have recycled items picked up and she says it really cuts down on the amount of trash that goes into the landfill, and it also benefits the environment because the items will be recycled.
Residents wishing to take advantage of the free dumping of large items will have to do so early, as the hours for that are 8 am to noon Saturday morning.
Mayor Peters also reminds residents, electronic items are not longer accepted at any landfill, however, she encourages those who have electronic items they are not using to take them to HRC East, out on Route 10.
