Dumpster Day

Germantown will host Amnesty Dumpster Day from 7:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. on Sept. 15 at 7700 Southern Ave. and 2950 Johnson Road.
Amnesty Dumpster Day, sponsored by the Germantown Environmental Commission, gives residents a chance to get rid of unwanted bulky items not picked up by sanitation service providers. Acceptable items include building materials, fencing or wire, steel poles, tires (without rims, limit four), concrete, dirt, rocks, lawn mowers, bikes and grills. Old recycling bins and trash cans will also be accepted for recycling. These items can be taken to either location.

At the Johnson Road Park location only, Shred-it will destroy up to three banker’s boxes per household of personal documents. Residents can observe the documents being shredded.

TheCyberYard.com Inc. will also be at the Johnson Road Park location accepting computers, copy and fax machines, microwaves, stereos and other electronic equipment. Participants are encouraged to bring no more than one monitor or television per household. By breaking these items into their components, the company enables disposal other than at a landfill.

Items considered hazardous waste will not be accepted. No business or commercial materials will be accepted.
