Bryan County residents who live in unincorporated areas can dispose of bulk trash items and yard waste free of charge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday during countywide bulk waste disposal day.
Automobile tires are also permissible, but there is a limit of four per resident.
Household garbage, wet paint, chemicals, tractor and semi-truck tires, oil and boats are not acceptable. There also is no curbside pickup. Residents have to take their bulk trash and yard waste to the dump themselves.
There are two sites available to unincorporated residents: the Spur 144 Landfill in South Bryan, and the Millcreek Landfill in North Bryan.
This service for unincorporated residents is included in the annual fee assessment paid each year when county taxes are collected.
“Bulk waste disposal day is a great opportunity for Bryan County residents to rid themselves of any waste laying around their homes, along with extra holiday trash that might have piled up,” said Bryan County Public Works Director Buddy Shuman. “Along with Republic Services, Bryan County aims to help local residents start the new year off with a little less ‘baggage’ weighing them down.”
Bulk trash days for residents in Richmond Hill will be held during Georgia Cities Week, April 21-27.
