Free tipping date set for Friday and Saturday, May 19-20
Adair County Judge Executive Michael Lee Stephens and the Adair County Fiscal Court are happy to announce that "Free Tipping" at the Mid-State Waste Transfer Station, 877 L. Willis Road will be held Friday, May 19, 2017 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. and until noon Saturday, May 20.
Free tipping is a highly anticipated event providing an opportunity for residents of Adair County to clean-up their properties and dispose of unwanted items and materials properly.
The Fiscal Court asks that residents choosing to take advantage of free tipping be patient as a considerable turnout is expected. It is also highly recommended that those hauling a load on a trailer or in the back of a pickup cover it or strap it down to avoid any of the materials flying off the back and littering the side of the roads.
Free tipping will be available two days at the Mid-State Transfer Station, L. Willis Road, Columbia, KY: Friday, May 19, 2017, from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. CT and Saturday, May 20, 2017, from 8 a.m.- 12 noon CT.
The items that will not be accepted: Tires, any hazardous waste materials, dirt, concrete, rocks, acetylene, oxygen, propane, or any other tank; steel cables, capacitors.
Paint cans will be accepted, but only if the contents have been previously dried with either sand and/or cat litter.
Adair County Solid Waste Coordinator David Smith and other personnel will be on-site much of the day to assist with the unloading process. Driver's licenses will be checked to ensure the service is being utilized by Adair County residents. No commercial vehicles or waste will be accepted.
The Fiscal Court would like to remind residents that, as items are gathered for free tipping, the Adair County Recycling Center accepts cardboard, plastics, newsprint, paper, and aluminum at 64 Service Road with personnel to help unload materials Monday-Wednesday from 7-3 p.m. Bins are set up for collection every day. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to dispose of recyclable materials properly and at their own convenience.
