Kearney County Clean Up Is Friday And Saturday
If you have been saving your unwanted materials and need a place to dispose of them, here is the opportunity.
After a two-year hiatus, the seventh annual Kearney County Clean-Up is scheduled to take place on Friday, May 20, and Saturday, May 21.
The reason for the clean up was triggered by Kearney County Road employees noticing a lot of trash in ditches and citizens were calling about the clean up.
This service is free to all Kearney County residents; it is sponsored by Kearney County and the City of Minden with both parties splitting the financial costs, manpower and equipment. County and city employees will be there for the citizens to help unload your trash.
The joint effort is between the county and city and both felt that the clean up was worth the money. This service is provided to the citizens of the county to clean out garages, attics and store rooms and in general allows them to get rid of things they would not normally be able to get rid of.
Contact the Minden Chamber of Commerce if you need to have volunteers come around to your house and pick up your garbage for a fee. Call Jessica at 832-1811 for more information.
Times will be from noon to 8 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
The drop-off site for the Kearney County Clean-up will be at the Kearney County Department of Roads on the east edge of Minden at 1124 East Ninth Street.
Items not accepted at the clean-up are tires, paint, liquids, pesticides, flammables, yard waste (grass clippings and tree branches), car and truck batteries, and anything considered hazardous waste.
