Responding to one of the top concerns raised at Imagine Concrete, the visioning workshop held in April, Concrete Mayor Judd Wilson has announced a townwide cleanup initiative. The effort takes place the weekend of June 5–7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

On Friday and Saturday, June 5 and 6, five 20-yard containers will be dropped near the wood-chipping site on Main Street on the eastern edge of Skateboard Park, where Concrete residents may bring their recyclables, scrap metal, and garbage items for free disposal.

The service is available only to Concrete residents, who will need to bring and display the flyer they received in the mail, plus a valid form of ID verifying their address to gain admittance.

In order to manage the amount of material collected, residents will be allowed one average-size pick-up load per resident. Other restrictions are on the flyer.

Typical materials that will be accepted include household garbage, junk and debris, clean wood, and recyclable materials. The Sauk Transfer Station will take, free of charge, motor oil, scrap metal, cardboard, newspapers, and batteries.

For more information, call the Town of Concrete at 360.853.8401.
