It’s fall and it’s time once again for Fall Bulky item drop-off days. The event will be held at the Monroe County Fairgrounds Friday October 24th and Saturday October 25th from 8:00 am. to 4:00 pm. Event sponsors are the Monroe County Solid Waste Management District (District), Hoosier Disposal & Recycling Services, the Monroe County Fair Board, and the Monroe County Highway Department. This event is designed for Monroe County residents to bring their unusable furniture, appliances, etc., to the Monroe County Fairgrounds, Gate #3 off Airport Road. There will be NO CHARGE for BULKY items.
Are you spending more on trash than you need to be? With the higher price of things today from gas to groceries, you want to spend your money wisely. The Orange Bag program of the Monroe County Solid Waste Management District (District) allows you to dispose of your trash and recyclables at the same time. Putting your trash in orange bags and taking the trash and your recyclables to a recycling and solid waste site nearest you reduces disposal costs.
So, if you have trash you need to dispose of and you don’t have City curbside pick-up service or you miss the collection day, the District’s Orange Bag Trash program can help you. Orange bags are available for purchase in most major grocery and hardware stores and they are available in two sizes: ten 33 gallon bags are $10, twenty 15 gallon bags are $10.
