Staff Report

Parker County will stage its annual Countywide Cleanup from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 6.

All county residents, including those who live inside city boundaries, may bring their disposables to the nearest precinct barn.

Most items will be accepted, including aluminum, iron, glass, dried paint cans, lumber, limbs and brush, newspapers, cardboard, furniture, appliances and tires (rims removed).

Unacceptable items include commercial waste, chemicals, shingles, wet paint and flammables.

As a courtesy to precinct workers, items should be bagged securely — no loose garbage — and separated to speed unloading and reduce labor.

County officials suggest residents form “clean teams” to clean and mow around personal and public property and roadways, offering help to the elderly and disabled.

Collection bags are available at the precinct barn.

Teams should wear bright colored clothing and protective gloves, eye wear and shoes.

Precinct 4 Commissioner Dusty Renfro’s contact information, collection site address and directions are listed below:
