I live on the outskirts of one of our towns. I can't tell you how many times first time visitors have said, "I didn't even know there were houses out here!" Well, indeed there are. There's also a compost pile the township set up for residents to bring their leaves, pruning clippings, etc. Unfortunately too many people seem to think that includes old sofas, mattresses, tires. So often people complain about the debris we see along the roads and in spots like our township compost pile. Well, let's take pride in our county and do something about it.
The Schuylkill County Fall Clean-Up will take place at the end of this month for county residents. Proof of residency must be provided--a driver's license will do just fine. Here's what they're collecting:
Tires - $2 without rims, $3 with rims
- limit of 20 tires
Furniture - $5 per cushion
Here's the pick-up schedule:
