Written by Jeanette Todd


It’s not too soon to begin preparing for the city’s annual spring clean-up.

With that in mind, there will be a couple of changes this year. The Kings Waste and Recycling Authority no longer provides Sunday service, so folks hauling away debris must do so between Monday and Saturday. Additionally, the household hazardous waste dumping will take place on Saturday, May 14. Those items include pesticides, paints, thinners and bleaches.
The clean-up itself is scheduled the week of April 30-May 7. The waste and recycling facility will be open between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day.
All City of Corcoran and county fringe residents are eligible to participate. A picture identification with matching current city services bill are required to be shown at the KWRA gate prior to entering, in order to dump free of charge. An alternate proof of qualification will be available at city hall.
No nuclear waste or car bodies will be accepted at the dump. Items that will be accepted include:
–Leaves, brush, lawn clippings;
–Auto parts and tires;
–Air conditioners and refrigerators;
–Small household appliances;
–E-waste, including computers, television sets and stereos; and
–Broken concrete (no trash mixed in with concrete).
