Fall clean-up efforts will be Oct. 5 through 12 in both Franklin County and the City of Mount Vernon.  Residents are urged to clean both public and private areas in preparation for the influx of visitors to the community for CountryFest, Homecoming and Wine in the Pines. Free disposal of refuse is offered at various sites during this period.

Furniture, including couches, chairs, bedding items and appliances, will be accepted. Citizens are asked to place metal and wood products in designated locations at the sites for special disposal or recycling. Items such as refrigerators and air conditioning units should have their cooling units removed.

None of the collection sites will be accepting tires, roofing materials or commercial refuse from construction sites. The city will not accept batteries at their dumpster; however, Pct. 1 and 4 Commissioners will accept them at their drop off locations.

Location : Check the Oct. 3 or 10 issue of the Optic-Herald for drop-off locations
