Trash bin to be used at cleanup

Residents of Union Bridge will be able to use a rented trash bin during the town's Spring Cleanup Day in May, the Town Council said.

The town did not rent a trash bin for the cleanup day last fall because trash got out of hand when outsiders came into town and filled the bin.

Councilwoman Bonnie Hyde said the bin should be rented for the day regardless of past problems.

"I know it is a costly thing for the town, but residents really missed the Dumpster last time," Ms. Hyde said. "I'd like to see it back out there this time."

Mayor Perry L. Jones Jr. said the residents would have to take responsibility for the bin to make sure the dumping privilege is not abused by outsiders.

Spring Cleanup Day is scheduled for May 15 from 8 a.m. to noon.

Councilman Bret Grossnickle said he would talk to a representative from Waste Management Inc. about renting the bin, which will sit in the lower town parking lot at Warehime Alley and West Elger Street.

Residents need to bring a water and sewer bill to use the bin, Clerk/Treasurer Kathleen D. Kreimer said.
