The County sponsored Heavy Trash Days on Friday and Saturday for the peninsula. Dumpsters from Peninsula Sanitation were lined up Friday morning, ready to collect large and otherwise cumbersome items not normally picked up with household garbage. A steady flow of pickups, trailers, and cars brought all types of debris for dumping. Everything from trailer loads of palm branches, tires, building materials, furniture, and appliances. With heavy equipment and lots of manpower, the lines moved smoothly as the trash was loaded into the dumpsters with the help of county employees and jail inmates working side-by-side. On Friday, 11 dumpsters were jam-packed, full and carted off. And on Saturday, another 8 dumpsters were filled and taken away. Members from the Lions Club and Keep Bolivar Beautiful provided lunch for the workers. The event brought out County dignitaries, including County Commissioner Darrell Apffel and Road & Bridge Director Lee Crowder. Where did all the trash come from? The peninsula is feeling lighter because of it. Thank you to all who made this clean up possible. We can all chip in to Keep Bolivar Beautiful.
