Large item pick up set for District 2

April 26, 2011

Area residents of Big Spring's District 2 will get the chance to get rid of some of their oversized garbage Friday, as the city continues its annual large item pickup service.

The program, which began last month with District 1, will target District 2 — represented by City Councilman Manuel Ramirez Jr. — this time around, part of a six-month project designed to help residents get rid of items too large to be transported by usual means to the landfill. “Some of the more typical items we pick up are appliances that don’t work anymore, couches and mattresses,” said Chad Averette, code enforcement supervisor for the city of Big Spring.

“Those are the kind of things that we can take to our landfill and we’re allowed to pick up. However, we can’t pick up any household hazardous waste. That means any kind of chemicals including lawn chemicals, car batteries and tires and things of that nature. We also won’t be picking up any tree branches, shrubs or things like that."
