Alpena County cleanup today

ALPENA ­– A countywide cleanup will be held today from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Alpena County Fairgrounds, 625 S. 11th Ave.

Alpena Resource Recovery Facility is hosting this event, which is free to county residents and to businesses who have a recycling permit. Recycling permits for businesses range from $100 to $300.

Your vehicle must be in line by 1 p.m. to ensure service.

If you have a small load in a car or pickup truck, you are asked to drop off between 8 and 11 a.m. If you have a large load with a trailer, you are asked to drop off between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. If large loads come earlier than 11 a.m., they will be asked to wait while smaller vehicles are unloaded.

Items that will be accepted include car and truck tires ($1 charge for tires with rims). The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality grant rules limit 10 tires per household/business. A charge of $2 will apply for each tire beyond 10 per household/business. Farmers are allowed 1 tractor tire for free.

Other items being accepted include white goods (refrigerators, appliances, water heaters, etc.), and furniture, mattresses/boxsprings.

Household hazardous waste will not be accepted — no cleaners, aerosols, solvents, paint, automotive cleaners, light bulbs, or fertilizer. No garbage will be accepted.
