The City of Thomasville Solid Waste Department invites you to spruce up for spring at the annual Spring Clean event to be held on Saturday, April 13th, and Saturday, April 20th. The event is open to all residents in the City of Thomasville.

“April is a popular time for household spring cleaning projects,” said Jimmy Smith Jr, Landfill & Solid Waste Director, “We host these drop-off events to assist our city residents with the disposal of household items that are not suitable for our landfill and at times result in roadside waste that is dangerous.”

This year’s Spring Clean event will kick off on April 13th at Paradise and Flipper Parks from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. “Each park will accept unwanted computers, gaming consoles, electronics, small and large household appliances, mattresses, box springs, batteries, and furniture,” said Smith. “This is a great opportunity to dispose of items not recommended to mix in with curbside yard trimmings or allowed in your residential refuse container.”

A second date is scheduled for Saturday, April 20th at Balfour Park and Cherokee Lake Park from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. “On April 20th Cherokee Lake located on Covington Avenue will be available for our traditional list of accepted disposable items,” said Smith. “In addition to our traditional list of household items, Balfour Park which is located on South Pinetree Blvd. and Martin Luther King Drive will serve as our only disposal location for materials not accepted at our local landfill such as automotive products, paint products, household and garden chemicals. When hazardous materials are not properly disposed of they can pose a threat to human health and our environment.”

“Whether remodeling your home or simply cleaning out the garage, the Spring Clean event can serve your needs,” said Smith. “We encourage citizens to participate and bring their household items for safe and responsible disposal at any of our convenient event locations.”
