Free dumping at landfill Saturday with voucher
Tomorrow is the last day to pick up a voucher at city hall in order to dump trash free of charge at the landfill on Saturday.
Vouchers may be picked up today and tomorrow from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Iowa Park residents are being offered a special service that hasn't been available in several years, free dumping of trash for one day at the landfill.
Compliments of the Iowa Park Community Development Corporation (CDC), city residents can clean up their yards and garages, gather up unwanted items on their property, and dispose of it at Progressive Waste Solutions of TX (formerly IESI) on Smith Road from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Pickups and pickups with a trailer may be used to haul the debris, but no commercial vehicles. There is a limit of one ton of debris per citizen, but tires, batteries or liquid waste (paint, etc.) will not be accepted. The loads should be tarped or tied down so debris is not lost on the way to the landfill.
Volunteers are being sought to pick up trash in public areas on Saturday. To participate, call city hall at 592-2131. Workers will be treated to free hot dogs and soft drinks.
