Get rid of  brush, trees, tires or other items for free during the City of Abilene's 'Fall Clean & Tire Amnesty Days" event.

Friday, October 7th and Saturday, October 8th, you can ditch all of your unwanted items and recycle them during the 'Fall Clean & Tire Amnesty Days'. Hours of operation will be from 9am to 4:30pm on Friday and 9am to 5pm on Saturday. So, make sure to grab all of that stuff that's taking up space on your lawn or in your garage and dump it off at the Recycling Center at 2209 Oak Street in Abilene.

From the City of Abilene's website:

"Typically, the ERC is a drop-off point for citizens to bring almost any type of recyclable materials including plastics, glass and cardboard to bulkier items such as electronics and old appliances. However, certain items such as large-scale remodeling project materials will not be accepted. Citizens will be asked to assist in off-loading their own items."

Citizens may bring up to eight passenger tires without rims, free of charge. However, truck tires without rims are $6 per tire and with rims $8 per tire. Agricultural tires will be accepted without rims only for a $35 per tire service fee. No commercial or business tires will be accepted.

For more information on recycling or the event, call the Environmental Recycling Center at 325-672-2209.
