Residents of Welch are reminded that Saturday is the town's cleanup day.

Kenni Morton, Welch city clerk, said this is the fourth year Welch has had the town's cleanup day a week before its Harvest Days celebration.

Last year residents filled three large dumpsters and had a lot of brush for the burn pile.

She said the city will place dumpsters for trash and metal scrap east of the Blossom Shoppe from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday for people to put their trash or scrap metal in for free.

"However, we will not be accepting hazardous materials like chemicals, fuels, oils, thinners or old paint at this time," she said.

Morton stressed that it is important that people put all their trash and metal scrap in the proper dumpsters. If people can't get their trash in the dumpsters or if they have brush that needs removing, people are asked to call city hall at 788-3616 for help.

Also, people who need their trash or scrap metal picked up should call city hall at 788-3616 by 4 p.m. Friday.

The dumpster for scrap metal will take old appliances like refrigerators, deep freezers, washers, dryers, batteries and other scrap metals.

Morton said the trash container will take household trash, but no garbage. However, she said tires and roofing materials will not be accepted.

She said anyone having some old junk cars they'd like to get rid of can call Johnny Tune by 4 p.m. Friday. He will buy them, she said.
