Republic Services and The City of Alton are partnering on a bulk/large item drop-off day for Alton.  Large items can be dropped at the event at no charge. The event Saturday from 7am to 11am is for residents of Alton only. Alton Mayor Brant Walker tells The Big Z what is and is not allowed to be dropped.

He says that Alton residents can feel free to bring mattresses, furniture, and carpet cut into four foot lengths. CJD E-Cycling will be at the event to pick up any electronics you want out of your sight as well.  The drop off site is the old landfill on North Alby Street across from the VFW.
