The center is located at 2833 Tin Top Road in Weatherford and will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.

A second center for Precincts 1 and 2 residents is scheduled to open sometime the end of April or end of May at the latest after additional work is done to complete the project, Precinct 1 Commissioner George Conley said.

• Household brush (not commercial brush)

• Scrap metal

• Tires without the rims

Items that will not be accepted include:

• Commercial/contractor waste

Pricing information will be published on the county’s website at once the facility is open.
