Spring Clean and Tire Amnesty Days coming April 11- 13

ABILENE, Texas – Clear out unwanted items from your property and recycle them during the upcoming Spring Clean and Tire Amnesty Days. During this annual event, citizens have a chance to spruce up their homes and properties while conveniently dropping off their cast-off items at the City of Abilene’s Environmental Recycling Center located at 2209 Oak St. The event will take place Thursday, April 11 through Saturday, April 13. Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Due to safety concerns, Oak Street will turn into a one way street with vehicles entering from South 25th Street, on Saturday, April 13. {{more}} Typically, the ERC is a drop-off point for citizens to bring almost any type of recyclable materials including plastics, glass and cardboard to bulkier items such as outdated electronics, furniture and old appliances. However, certain items such as large-scale remodeling project materials will not be accepted. While most items may be dropped off free of charge, citizens will be asked to off-load their own items. At this year’s Spring Clean, citizens may bring up to eight passenger tires without rims, free of charge with proof of residency . However, truck tires without rims are $6 per tire and with rims $8 per tire. Ag tires will be accepted without rims only for a $35 per tire service fee. No commercial or business tires will be accepted. For more information on recycling or the Spring Clean event, call 325-672-2209.
