Spring is here and, along with the season, comes the effort to get your property spruced up and, to help with that, both the city of Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County will be providing places for all those things you want to get rid of.
    Clean-up days in Sulphur Springs will start Monday, April 15, and continue through Friday, April 20.
    The city's collection site will be in its usual location on Jefferson Street, about a quarter mile east of the Flowserve plant.
     “We accept everything except household hazardous waste, chemicals, paint, batteries, tires and appliances that contain Freon,” City Manager Marc Maxwell said.
    The cleanup program is not open to everybody; it's open to city residents only and is not for commercial purposes - only residential purposes.
    “So bring your water bill and your identification for proof that you are, in fact, a city resident,” the city manager emphasized. “There will be people there to help you off-load your truck or trailer and it should be a fairly orderly process.”
    For Hopkins County residents the clean-up days will be Friday, April 26 from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 27 from 7 a.m. to 12 noon, according to County Judge Chris Brown.
    “Our clean-up will have guys at all four county precinct barns at the same time,” Brown said. “There are always Dumpsters at the county barns and you can always take things to the Dumpsters there but Friday and Saturday, there will be help for unloading.”
    Brown says they will not accept tires, wet paint, hazardous waste, commercial trash or shingles. Clean up days are for county residents only.
