Operation Clean Sweep Heads to SOUTH Mobile County

May 05, 2017

Residents of South Mobile County will get the chance to tidy up their neighborhoods and dispose of unwanted household items and yard debris, during Operation Clean Sweep set for 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Saturday, May 6, at 4304 Bay Road, located off of Dauphin Island Parkway at the intersection of Thomas Road in the Fowl River community.

The FREE community clean-up day allows area residents the opportunity to work with county officials and community service workers to make their neighborhoods a cleaner place to live. Other items being accepted include furniture, clothing, scrap metal, appliances, household items, yard debris, phones and microwaves. Items excluded for disposal are waste oil, oil filters, junk cars, boats, tires, dead animals, pressure tanks of any kind, explosives, aerosol cans, household garbage, TVs and computer monitors.

There will be a crew at the site to help residents unload vehicles. Two boom trucks will be working simultaneously to load the materials onto dump trucks for disposal at another site.

Operation Clean Sweep is a county-wide program that encourages all Mobile County residents to work together, from picking up garbage on the side of the road to clearing junk out of homeowners’ yards. Operation Clean Sweep will provide a central location where you and your neighbors may dispose of your trash.

The Mobile County Environmental Enforcement Department invites citizens to sign up for an Operation Clean Sweep effort in their neighborhoods. All it takes is for a group of 12 or more residents to be interested, select a team captain and call 574-STOP (7867).
