City to no longer pick up curbside items during March 23-27 cleanup

POCAHONTAS – At Tuesday night’s monthly City Council meeting, aldermen unanimously approved a recommendation from Mayor Keith Sutton that the City no longer pick up items from the curbside during spring cleanup due to the rising costs of operations at the City of Pocahontas Street Department.

Sutton said during spring cleanup, which is March 23-27, residents will be allowed to haul items to the Randolph County Transfer Station at no charge during that week but that trash is not included. Residents will be required to have a water bill and a driver’s license in order to dispose of items. The transfer station will not be accepting paints, oils, tires or shingles at no charge, however. For citizens who hire help to haul their items to the station, the City asks to give the helper a water bill and another proof of address.

Sutton presented a brief State of the City address at the end of the meeting and thanked everyone for their hard work over the year.

“It’s been a great year – a super year,” said Sutton.
