Countywide cleanup this weekend

The Countywide Cleanup is Saturday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. at all precinct barns.

All Parker County residents are encouraged to clean up their personal property and, if possible, form neighborhood groups to clean and mow roadsides, public areas and assist disabled persons in cleaning around their homes.

This is an excellent opportunity to meet your neighbors and enhance the formation of networks throughout the county, which can actively support a number of worthwhile projects from crime watch to helping neighbors in need.

Cleanup day is for private citizens, not commercial disposal. Residents are required to bring some form of proof of residency, as the clean up is for Parker County residents only.

Commissioners’ precinct barns will have areas or receptacles designated for the following items:

• Aluminum, iron, glass etc.

• Newspapers and cardboard.

• Tires (rims removed).

• Furniture/appliances.

• Dried paint cans.

• Lumber, limbs and brush.

• Batteries, oil filters and oil.

No flammable liquids, shingles, paint or chemicals will be accepted. As a courtesy to workers, separate items and bag securely to speed unloading and reduce labor. Please do not expect them to unload loose garbage.

All Parker County residents may go to the closest collection site. Directions to precinct barns are as follows:

• Precinct 1 – Commissioner George Conley, 817-220-7218 - 3000 Veal Station Rd. Weatherford, TX. 76085.

• Precinct 2 – Commissioner Craig Peacock, 817-594-4022 - 3033 FM RD 1885, Weatherford, TX 76088.

• Precinct 3 – Commissioner, Larry Walden, 817-594-0371 – 1111 FM 1189, Weatherford, TX 76087.• Precinct 4 – Commissioner Dusty Renfro, 817-596-0004, 1320 Airport Rd. Aledo, TX 76008.

For more information contact your county precinct barn at the phone numbers listed above or the Parker County office of Texas AgriLife Extension Service at (817) 598-6168.
