County offers free dumping services

CLAREMORE — Rogers County will host a “Trash Off” event on April 18-20 at several locations throughout the county to provide free trash dumping services to residents.

Each county commissioner will offer the services during the three days, however, schedules and accepted materials may vary.
“Offering this service once a year gives the residents of Rogers County a chance to dispose of items that are difficult to get rid of, and keeps them from being dumped in ditches and on county roads,” District 1 Commissioner Dan DeLozier said. 
DeLozier has been offering the trash dump day in cooperation with the Oklahoma Annual Trash-Off event for five years and this year will offer five fully staffed dump sites for residents.
District 1 will accept trash at the Chelsea Warehouse located at the Chelsea Industrial Park, Claremore Warehouse at 18955 S. 4150 Road, Tri-District Fire Department Station 1 at 19833 Sunny Lane in Claremore, Tri-District Fire Department Station 2 on 4180 Road between 450 Road and 460 Road in Sequoyah and the Shale Pit located on 410 Road between 4170 Road and 4180 Road.
Signs will be posted with location directions.
District 1 will accept batteries, small appliances (with refrigerant removed), furniture, automobile and light truck tires (up to 20 inches and without rims), household trash and brush from yard maintenance.
District 1 will not accept hazardous materials such as household chemicals, paint, thinner, stains or oil products.  Refuse generated by businesses, contractors or other enterprises will not be accepted.
District 3 Commissioner Kirt Thacker will also be offering services all three days at two locations.
District 3 will be open 6:30 a.m to 4 p.m. on April 18 and 9a.m to 3 p.m. on April 19 and 20. 
District 3 will offer services at the Inola yard located at 17614 E. 589 Road and the Claremore Warehouse at 2425 S. Warehouse Road in Claremore.
District 3 will be accepting furniture, mattresses, carpeting, home remodeling debris, car and light truck tires (with rims removed), brush, branches and other yard maintenance materials and al appliances with refrigerants or CFCs removed.
