Nitro residents will have the opportunity to get rid of their unwanted televisions, tires, computers and other garbage during the Kanawha County Cleanup.
Anyone may bring garbage to the city garage on Republic Way 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 12. Workers will be waiting to help unload the garbage and take it to a licensed landfill in Institute.
County Commission President Kent Carper began the cleanup several years ago as a way to deter people from "just dumping in ravines," City Recorder Rita Cox said.
The countywide effort is held twice each year; once in the spring and again in the fall. Cox said the amount of garbage collected is "amazing."
Public Works Director A.J. Hill said the landfill in Institute has the ability to properly dispose of items such as tires and electronics.
Other items that will be accepted include accumulated solid waste, large appliances, air conditioners, newspapers, all metal, car batteries and plastics.
Residents may also bring up to 10 tires with West Virginia identification.
The landfill will not accept gas or propane tanks, hazardous waste, paint, chemicals or motor oil.
"I think Public Works allowing the citizens of Nitro to the city garage is an excellent public service," Councilman Andy Shamblin said.
In other business, Wintz Street, between 21st and 22nd streets, will become a one-way street, with traffic flowing from 21st Street to 22nd Street, effective Nov. 1.
Council voted in a split decision to adopt this resolution after hearing from Lynne Fruth, president of Fruth Pharmacies, at the last council meeting.
