Spring Clean and Tire Amnesty Days coming Apr. 7 - 8
Clear out unwanted items from your property and recycle them during the upcoming Spring Clean and Tire Amnesty Days. During this annual event, citizens have a chance to spruce up their homes and properties while conveniently dropping off their cast-off items at the City of Abilene’s Environmental Recycling Center (ERC), 2209 Oak St.
The event will take place Friday, Apr. 7 and Saturday, Apr. 8, 2017. Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Due to safety concerns, Oak St. will turn into a one-way street with vehicles entering from South 25th St., on Saturday, Apr. 8.
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.
At this year’s Spring Clean, citizens may bring up to eight passenger tires without rims, free of charge with proof of residency (current water bill). Truck tires without rims are $5 per tire and with rims $8 per tire. Agricultural tires will be accepted without rims only for a $35 per tire service fee. Commercial or business tires will not be accepted.
