Fall clean-up efforts will be Oct. 14 and Oct. 16 through 21 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 and the Mount Vernon Food & Wine Festival, as well as a myriad of reunions both high school classes and rural communities. 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. The city's site is closed on Sunday.

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, Pcts. 1, 3, and 4 Commissioners will accept them at their drop off locations. Sites are located in all four commissioners' precincts for disposal by rural residents.  City residents may take their items to dumpsters located at the City's Holbrook St. Maintenance Barn.

Location : Check the Oct. 12 or 19 issue of the Optic-Herald for drop-off locations
