The city of Carlisle will sponsor the annual Trash Bash on Monday and Wednesday through May 10.
The town will be divided into four sections, and city crews will cover a different section Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The city will not pick up trash for the event on Tuesday because it is a regular trash pickup day.
Residents are asked to have trash bagged and placed at the curb on the day their area is scheduled for pickup. The city will not accept grass clippings, full paint cans, building materials, mattresses, roofing or car parts.
Crews will pick up large tree limbs and branches. City workers ask that branches be a minimum of four feet in length. Smaller limbs can be kicked back out of the chipper, which poses a hazard for city workers. It also will speed up the pickup if limbs are placed with the trunk facing the street.
Daily household trash will not be picked up the city crew.
As in the past years, pallets will be will be placed for batteries at the Lonoke County Waste Transfer Station, which is located outside town on Arkansas Highway 13 South.
Passenger and light truck tires can be dropped off at Eddie’s Tire and Lube, which is located at the intersection of Court Street and U.S. Highway 70. Tractor, dually and tractor-trailer tires cannot be accepted. Paint cans will be collected, but they must be empty with the lid removed and contain no paint. Other large items must be taken to the transfer station.
There also will be a place available to dispose of old appliances and large items at the transfer station that cannot be picked up by city workers.
People may use the transfer station during normal hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
