The City of Thomasville Solid Waste Department will host their annual Spring Clean events April 15 and April 22. Spring Clean events provide safe disposal locations for items not suitable for the landfill.
“The month of April is a popular time for many people to do some spring cleaning around their homes,” said Solid Waste and Landfill Superintendent Jimmy Smith. “We host our Spring Clean events to serve as safe, convenient drop off locations and to keep our city clean and welcoming.”
This year’s event dates and sites are:
- Saturday, April 15 from 8 am-noon at Paradise Park and Flipper Park
- Saturday, April 22 from 8 am-noon at Balfour Park and Cherokee Park
All locations will accept electronics, appliances, computers, batteries, and mattresses. The Cherokee Park event will also accept hard to dispose of items like paint and household chemicals.
“Hazardous materials have to be disposed of properly because they can pose a threat to human health and our environment,” noted Smith. “We’re happy to provide this disposal service at our Cherokee Park location so these materials are handled safely and effectively.”
Spring Clean events are open to all City of Thomasville residents. For more information, contact the Solid Waste Department at 229-227-7092.
