Republic Services, CJD E-Cycling, and The City of Alton are partnering again this year to host a bulk/large item drop-off day for Alton the first Saturday in October at the old landfill.  Alton residents will be able to drop off large items at the event - most at no charge.

Alton spokesman Kimberly Clark tells The Big Z the event has proven to be a popular one.

CJD E-Cycling will be at the event to pick up any electronics you want out of your sight as well, but there may be charges affixed to those items.  She says more information about the event will be shared closer to the date of the event, which is set for October 1.
