July 18, 2006 -- To go along with a new effort to beautify Hopkins County, Precinct 4 Commissioner Danny Evans has scheduled two days for clean-up in his precinct.
Hopkins County Precinct 4 Clean Up Days will provide the opportunity for residents of the precinct -- whether they live inside the city limits of Sulphur Springs or in the county -- to get rid of all kinds of trash.
The days and hours the refuse will be accepted will be Friday, July 21, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. and Saturday, July 22, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. The collection point will be at the Precinct 4 county yard, located just south of Ridgeway on FM 2653.
Evans said that just about anything will be accepted for disposal, except for used oil and other petroleum products.
"I will tell you what [residents] can't bring," he said. "They can't bring chemicals, poisons, shingles and that's about it."
Evans said that old tires will also be accepted during the designated clean-up days, but there will be a charge for each tire to be disposed of.
"We are going to charge a $5 disposal fee," he said. "It doesn't matter if it is a trailer tire, for a pickup, or whatever."
Tires, size 20 inches or more, will require an additional $5 fee for disposal.
The commissioner emphasized, however, that the clean-up is limited to residents of his precinct.
"As long as they live in Precinct 4, whether they live in the city or the county, they can bring stuff," he said. "A driver's license will be required as proof they live in Precinct 4."
Evans said that the clean-up will be for residential disposal only, and no commercial material will be accepted.
