Alton residents, mark your calendar.  August 22 has been designated as the day you can drop off bulk items for recycling at the old landfill on Alby Street.  The city is teaming up with Republic Services/Allied Waste to allow residents to dispose of large items at no charge.  You will be asked to show identification.

You cannot bring concrete, shingles, construction debris, loose trash, trash in bags and cardboard boxes, tires, and other household hazardous materials.  Dan Herkert, Chief of Staff in the mayor’s office, tells The Big Z there are plenty of items that will be accepted.

Again, the bulk-recycling day will be Saturday, August 22nd, from 7am until 11am, at the old landfill on Alby Street across from the VFW.  For more information, call the Alton Public Works Department at 463-3530.
