The Watauga County Board of Commissioners have designated next week, May 18 – 23, as Community Pride Week.
The county commissioners said the goal of Community Pride Week is to improve the appearance of Watauga County.
Watauga County’s recycling coordinator, Lisa Doty, said county residents will have an opportunity to dispose of several types of waste like furniture, yard debris, electronics, and others for free.
Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Watauga County residents will be able to take appliances, tires, furniture, metal, asphalt, brick, cement, rock, and brush to the county landfill for free. Doty said asphalt shingles and stumps would not be accepted.
Doty said residents will be able to dispose of household hazardous waste on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 a.m. at the county landfill. Doty explained substances like paint, household batteries, NiCad batteries, antifreeze, pesticides, used oils, and more will be able to be disposed.
Anyone with questions about Community Pride Week or recycling should contact Doty at (828) 264-5305 for more information.
