Commissioners Court Designates April 26-27 As County Cleanup Days

Hopkins County Commissioners Court announced two days county residents can get rid of certain unwanted items from their residences.

The precinct barns will be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, April 26, and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 27, for the annual County Cleanup Days.

There are a few items considered hazardous waste that will not be accepted, including tires, shingles, chemicals and liquid paint. Dried paint in cans will be accepted.

Appliances that contain Freon will not be accepted, unless the person can produce documentation that a certified person has removed all Freon from the appliance prior to it being accepted, Hopkins County Fire Chief Andy Endsley said.
Precinct 3 Commissioner Wade Bartley said he will, however, accept batteries at his barn.
The County Cleanup is only available for Hopkins County residents, not for commercial disposal. Residents are asked to present a driver’s license, ID card or other document such as a utility bill that contains the person’s name and physical address, proving residence within Hopkins County.

County residents may take their items to their precinct barn to dispose of them. Barns are located as follows:

  • Precinct 1: 5516 State Highway 19 south — from Interstate 30, travel south on SH 19 approximately 5 to 6 miles (pass County Road 1174). The barn is located just north of County Road 1116.
  • Precinct 2: 12080 State Highway 11 east –the county barn is located approximately ¼ mile east of Como.
  • Precinct 3: 583 County Road 3564 — from FM 69 north turn left onto County Road 3564 for about ½ mile.
  • Precinct 4: 97 County Road 4786 — from State Highway 11 west in Ridgeway, travel south onto FM 2653 approximately 2.5 miles.
