With McCreary County’s free bulk item drop-off scheduled for October 22nd and 23rd, it’s the perfect time to begin preparing for winter by doing some fall clean-up of yards, garages, and homes. The free drop-off will be held at the recycling center on Caterpillar Drive in Stearns. The event will be from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 22 and 8:00 a.m. until noon on Saturday, October 23. County workers and volunteers will be available to help with unloading.
The following guidelines are in place for the drop-off:
1. All who participate must be McCreary County residents and be signed up for garbage service with Scott Solid Waste. Participants should bring a copy of their most recent bill for faster service.
2. No contractors, tires, or household garbage allowed.
3. No hazardous chemicals allowed-paint, oil, etc. Old cans of paint will be accepted if the cans have been filled with cat litter.
