PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — Paducah and McCracken County residents are gearing up for the annual Spring Clean Up Day scheduled for Saturday, April 13. This event offers residents the opportunity to dispose of household garbage, hazardous waste, old tires, appliances, e-scrap, and more free of charge.

The event, rain or shine, will run from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Republic Services transfer station located at 829 Burnett Street. Proper identification, such as a driver’s license, is required for all attendees to verify residency.

However, organizers emphasize that medical waste, commercial waste, and radioactive items will not be accepted at the site.

Spring Clean Up Day is made possible through funding from a Household Hazardous Waste Grant provided by the Kentucky Division of Waste Management. Partners supporting the event include the City of Paducah, Clean Earth, Inc., Liberty Tire, McCracken County, McCracken County Sheriff’s Department, Paducah Police Department, Paducah Power System, and Republic Services.

Residents are encouraged to mark their calendars and participate in this community effort to keep Paducah and McCracken County clean and safe.
