From April 1 through 12, the city of Kingsport is holding its annual spring clean-up service for residents. Residents can place extra items on the curb for garbage crews to haul away at no extra charge. The city encourages residents to clean up and clean out their yards, garages and basements. Every resident will receive two garbage and recycling pick-ups and one trash pick-up during the two-week period.
The city will pick-up:
Tires (only 4 per household and off the rim)
Small amount of building materials (drywall, carpet, scrap lumber)
Bagged or loose leaves
The city will not pick-up:
Tires on rims
Contractor generated building materials
Contractor generated tree debris
During the clean-up weeks, the city will accept items outside the garbage can. A leaf truck will also run during this time. While the spring clean-up service is free for residents, the city will still charge for contractor-generated waste and tree debris during these weeks.
Computer items, such as monitors, keyboards and hard drives, can be taken to the Sullivan County Transfer Station on Brookside Drive.
Sullivan County will hold its annual hazardous material collection on May 4 and October 5 at Sullivan Central High School from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call 423-323-6439 to learn more.
