Richland County is having a special community “clean sweep” for the Mill Creek neighborhood in District 10, making it easy for residents to dispose of household items not normally accepted at curbside collections.
The clean sweep is organized by Richland County Councilman Dalhi Myers, District 10, and Special Services, a division of Public Works. Items must be placed curbside Friday, July 20 as workers will begin picking up the items at 8 a.m. Saturday, July 21.
The following items will be accepted:
Bulk items (furniture, washers and dryers, refrigerators, push mowers free of gas and oil, bicycles,
disassembled swing sets, etc.)
Similar materials should be placed together in separate piles (keep tires together, bulk items together, yard waste together, etc.) Items not accepted include hazardous waste, batteries, electronics and liquid waste.
Special Services officers will patrol the neighborhoods to offer assistance the day of the clean sweep.
