The Monroe County Landfill welcomes all of that stuff you would rather not think about, aren’t planning to leave to your kids, and is just taking up precious space.

Bring it to the landfill from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 26, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The landfill is located on Junco Road in the town of Ridgeville.

Clean Sweep is open to all Monroe County residents; however, commercial and industrial waste is not accepted.
