“Community Dumpster Day” arrives on Saturday, May 11 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the NECIC Community Outreach Center, located at 486 Springmill St. This event, organized by the Richland County Land Bank and the North End Community Improvement Collaborative (NECIC), encourages residents to responsibly dispose of unwanted items and contributes to a cleaner, greener community.

A Day for Decluttering and Donations

Community Dumpster Day is an opportunity for Richland County residents to rid their homes and yards of excess clutter that cannot be easily disposed of through regular trash services. The event also welcomes donations, allowing good condition items to find new homes and purposes, reflecting the community’s commitment to recycling and reusing.

What to Bring and What to Leave Behind

The organizers have issued clear guidelines on what items are accepted and which are prohibited to ensure safety and compliance with disposal laws:

  • Accepted: General household waste and other non-restricted items.
  • Prohibited: Metal wastes, liquid wastes, drums or tanks, tires, batteries, harmful chemicals, explosive or flammable materials, and large appliances.

For items that cannot be disposed of at the event, a QR code is provided on the promotional flyer, directing residents to resources for proper disposal methods.

A Community Effort

The Community Dumpster Day is more than just a clean-up effort; it’s a vital part of building community spirit and promoting environmental responsibility. “Throw garbage in its place,” the event’s tagline, echoes the community’s push towards reducing litter and enhancing the local environment.

Contact and More Information

Residents seeking more information about what can be disposed of or how to participate in the donation process can contact NECIC at (419) 522-1611 or the Richland County Land Bank at (419) 774-5623.

This initiative not only supports Richland County’s ecological goals but also fosters a sense of community and cooperation among its residents, proving that every small act of responsibility helps in building a cleaner, more sustainable environment.
