‘Free Day’ for Shelby County Landfill will be Oct. 7

By GRAHAM BROOKS / Staff Writer

COLUMBIANA–The second designated “free day” for 2017 at the Shelby County Landfill has been set for Saturday, Oct. 7.

The free day is meant for Shelby County residents, churches, civic groups and municipalities in Shelby County to dispose of trash and debris at no charge.

Between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., residents of Shelby County with 1-ton trucks/trailers or less may come to the landfill to dispose of unwanted residential household debris.

The free day is not intended for commercial waste disposal and items such as hazardous waste, automobile batteries, vehicle tires or liquid wastes will not be accepted.

All municipal initiatives or projects on these dates that involve contract haulers will be allowed to participate as long as prior approval is obtained through Shelby County Environmental Services and each applicable waste transport vehicle displays the county assigned access placard.

The Shelby County Landfill is located off Alabama 70 at 401 Landfill Rd between Columbiana and Calera.
