Each of the town’s polling rooms will be assigned a large dumpster for two days this week so Anniston residents can dispose of large items around their homes.
Anniston City Council heard on Tuesday evening the plan for a quarterly elimination day that will allow residents to get rid of items such as furniture and some household appliances that the street service no longer picks up.
Jackson Hodges, head of public information for Anniston, said Friday and Saturday dumpsters will be available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each of those days.
“This is an opportunity for citizens to get rid of all the items that our street service no longer collects – it would be household garbage, it would be furniture,” Hodges said. “All items can be disposed of free of charge, with the exception of hazardous waste such as batteries and corrosive products, paint, electronics, tires or Freon devices such as refrigerators or freezers.
Hodges said the dumpsters would be emptied on both days.
The skips will be at the following locations:
– Ward 1: Youth Baseball Complex parking lot, 356 Summerall Gate Road.
– Ward 2: Randolph Park Parking Lot (the city park and not the school), 1906 Bancroft Avenue.
– Ward 3: South Highland Community Center parking lot, 229 Allen Ave, Anniston, AL 36207
– Ward 4: Norwood Hodges Community Center Parking Lot, 3125 Spring Valley Rd.
