KEEP DOUGLAS COUNTY BEAUTIFUL HOSTS THE FIRST TRASH AND RECYCLING DUMP EVENT FOR CITY AND COUNTY RESIDENTS.
(Douglas County, Georgia)-Keep Douglas County Beautiful held its first Junk Dump for citizens to dispose of their household trash and recyclables, free of charge! The event took place at the courthouse on Saturday, March 19, 2022, and KDCB staff and volunteers helped citizens unload about 281 cars.
"We are grateful to all who came out and participated and contributed to the results from the Junk Dump, and we are excited to make this a quarterly event for our residents," said Keep Douglas County Beautiful coordinator Tabrieah Cobb. "My goal is to provide citizens with a free, convenient opportunity to remove and dispose of unwanted trash, recyclables, and appliances from their homes, yards, and out of our roads."
City and County residents began dropping off their items around 8:30 am. Among those items were: toilets, T.V. screens, appliances, medical waste, furniture, etc. Keep Douglas County Beautiful urges citizens to remember that for all upcoming Junk Dumps, the event is over once the dumpsters are filled.
