 City residents offered Spring Cleaning Day – April 30 – to discard nuisance items.




City of Greer residents have become accustomed to disposing of nuisance items such as paint and pesticides at the city's annual Amnesty Day. A new name for the event – Spring Cleaning Day – is in store for residents this year.

Spring Cleaning Day will be held from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 30 at the City Recycling Center at 315 Buncombe Street. Only trash items that are not permitted in weekly curbside collection can be brought to the center for disposal. Items from commercial businesses will not be accepted. Workers will be on site to remove the items for visitors.

Items to be collected include appliances, lawnmowers, electronics (e-waste), tires, paint and paint thinner, motor oil, herbicides, insecticides, mattresses and many additional items. Contact the Public Services Department at 848-2184 with any questions about qualifying items.

“We’ve experienced a sharp rise in attendance over the past few years as city residents take advantage of this service,” said Skipper Burns, director of public services. “It’s a good time to clean out garages and storage sheds to remove items like paint and pesticides that aren’t likely to be used again.”

Residents may bring up to a boxful of personal papers to take advantage of an industrial shredder and members of the Greer Police Department and its Citizens Academy Alumni Association will be on hand to accept expired and unneeded prescription drugs.

Spring Cleaning Day is held in conjunction with ACE Environmental Inc. and is free.
