Taylor County residents who want to do some spring cleaning will soon have a place to take some of their unwanted items.

The County will offer a cleanup Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The cleanup will be at the paved back parking lot at the former Fruit of the Loom building.

Those attending should enter and exit only off West Main Street. Signs will be posted.

There may be a long line, so those attending are asked to be patient and watch for traffic and workers.

The cleanup is free to Taylor County residents and is sponsored by Taylor County Fiscal Court.

Those attending should be prepared to present a valid driver's license to be allowed to dispose of their items. For more information, call Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers' office at 465-7729.

Items not accepted include steel cable, hazardous waste, shingles, oil and oil filters, tires, anti-freeze, concrete, brick, stone, yard and tree trimmings, household garbage, compact trash and paint.
