It’s time to clean up, ladies and gentlemen – the city of Farmersville’s annual clean up event is just around the corner.

Saturday, July 20 will afford residents the opportunity to make their homes and property spiffy.

“We really hope people will take this opportunity to clean up their property,” Police Chief Mike Sullivan said.

Citizens can bring their bulky items such as brush, limbs and old furniture to the city’s maintenance yard located at 302 S. Johnson Street from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Those participating must live in the city limits and either have an ID with a city of Farmersville address or a city utility bill.

Those interested in disposing of household hazardous waste (HHW), such as old paint or oil, are encouraged to stop by city hall and pick up a HHW bag. This bag can be filled with containers of the chemicals and then disposed of through Community Waste Disposal at the citizens’ homes. HHW kits, with instructions, will also be available during the clean up event at the maintenance yard.

Items that will not be accepted include dead animals, propane tanks and 55 gallon barrels.

Refrigerators and freezers will not be accepted unless they have the CFC removed and have a special tag.

Those needing help with items can arrange assistance with the police department by calling 972-782-6141.
