The Brown County Landfill’s spring residential cleanup will run from April 28 through May 13.
Commissioners waived landfill fees for the cleanup during the Tuesday, April 11regular meeting at the Brown County Courthouse.
Landfill manager Mike Scott said there will be two drop sites around Aberdeen available for use from 1 to 5 p.m. April 28 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 29.
One will be at the near Jensen Rock & Sand two blocks south of the White House Inn on South Fifth Street. The other will be at the Brown County Highway Department, 3133 Eighth Ave. N.E.
Batteries, furniture, appliances, electronics, scrap metal, rubble and miscellaneous waste can be left at the drop sites. There is a limit of four car or pickup tires.
The landfill will accept all of those items and others that should not be taken to the drop sites, including shingles, paint, trees, grass, branches, waste oil, propane tanks and antifreeze.
Mobile homes and waste from large demolition projects, including shelter belts, will not be accepted at the landfill or drop sites.
The spring cleanup is for residents. There will be landfill fees for commercial and business waste.
All loads taken to the landfill must be covered and secured, and motorists should get to the landfill by using asphalt roads, which means taking U.S. Highway 12 west out of Aberdeen. The landfill address is 13225 379th Ave.
Scott said between 4,000 and 8,000 vehicles usually visit the landfill during the spring cleanup.
