Fall version of Clean & Green set for Saturday, Oct. 14

Hazardous Household Waste to be accepted as well

 

MURPHY (October 6, 2023) The fall version of the highly popular Clean & Green event, during which Murphy residents are encouraged to bring their recycling and unwanted items to City Hall for disposal, is set for Saturday, Oct. 14.

 The event, free to Murphy residents, opens at 9 a.m. and closes promptly at noon. A valid driver’s license or utility bill will be required to participate. Collection stations will be spread out along the Murphy City Hall driveways, 206 North Murphy Road, and will feature a drive through-drop off format.

Among the material collected for disposal or recycling are light bulbs, batteries, and electronics such as old printers, computers, televisions, monitors, and other similar items. Document shredding will be offered as well. Denim material is also being collected in the Denim Go Green campaign, recycling the material into home insulation.

Notably, hazardous household waste (HHW) and large electronic recycling will also be accepted at the morning event. Hazardous household waste includes wet paint, solvents, acids, strong cleaners, paint thinners, fertilizers, floor stripping liquids, weed killing chemicals, and similar toxic or otherwise dangerous chemicals.

Dawnelle Collings, President of Keep Murphy Beautiful, says that accepting HHW and large electronic devices saves residents from trying to figure out what to do with these items.

Usable shoes, clothing, toys, cooking and eating utensils, as well as other housewares will be collected, sorted, and shared with organizations that provide this kind of assistance to residents in need.

Collings says pet supplies and unopened pet food for dogs and cats housed at the Murphy Animal Shelter will be accepted. The shelter will also accept toys, leashes, collars, harnesses, carriers, and other pet-related items.

 The event is weather dependent. Should inclement weather threaten to postpone or cancel the event, updates will be posted on City of Murphy social media sites. More information can be obtained by contacting Keep Murphy Beautiful at 972-468-4304.
