Massive clean-up is April 18

Dublin Clean is set for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday and will expand on the usual trash-off efforts by allowing anyone with a Dublin address to bring in old appliances and tires, as well as the usually accepted household trash and debris. Curbside pick-up will be available to anyone living inside the Dublin city limits. 

The City will be opening a side entrance for the express unloading of items at the yard. Anyone bringing items will enter from E. Harris, unload and then exit from the traditional entrance on N. Norton. The intersection of Harris and Norton will be closed during the event. (See picture for a diagram of the route.)

With grants providing for the removal of 800 tires and five tons of appliances, City crews are seeking assistance to ensure that Dublin Clean is a success.

Essary has expressed a need for volunteers, vehicles and trailers.Volunteers will be hauling junked items to the public works yard at 602 N. Norton throughout the morning. 

Volunteers are meeting in the City Park at 7 a.m. that morning. Volunteers will also be treated to a free lunch with hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and drinks. (Volunteers can still pledge their efforts by calling City Hall at 445-3331.)

Essary reports that the list of items that can’t be taken during Dublin Clean is small, with restrictions on paint, light bulbs, alkaline batteries, gasoline, oils, Freon items, tractor tires, rims and chemicals.

Electric items accepted include appliances, computers and accessories, monitors, televisions, video game consoles, cameras, home theater devices and speakers, microwaves, dishwashers, washers and dryers.

Keep Dublin Beautiful moved the annual trash-off day to coincide with the event. Those who traditionally volunteer for that annual event will be helping this massive effort to clean up Dublin.
