Gather your scraps and leftovers from your remodeling projects and bring it to Public Works at 305-307 First Street on Saturday, November 6, 2021 between 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. In future years this program may be expanded to include the first Saturday of every month in summer and spring and, if weather permitting, go until December 1st.

Public Works will be accepting the following types of remodeling debris:

  • Drywall, sheet rock and other walling material
  • Plywood, Lumber, molding, and other scrap wood
  • Wooden fences and wooden fence posts
  • Ceramic, porcelain, and stone tiles
  • Vinyl and wood flooring
  • Toilets, bathtubs, sinks and other bathroom fixtures
