City plans recycling event

EAST LIVERPOOL-The East Liverpool Refuse and Recycling Department will hold a cleanup day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The event is free, but city residents will be limited to one truck or car load per household.

Drop-offs can be made at the Car Barn, 1253 Pennsylvania Ave., where city employees will be available to help empty the contents into the compactor. No electronics, tires, hazardous waste or large appliances will be accepted.

Residents may bring materials in their cars or two-axle pickup trucks. Larger vehicles or loads that are deemed too large will be turned away at the gate.

Questions about acceptable items should be directed to the Office of Service-Safety at 330-386-6584 before hauling.

Residents who are unable to come on cleanup day may use the year-round service by contacting the mayor’s office at 330-385-3381 to arrange to have one to five large items picked up for $25.
