Wet beginning for Clean Sweep's second day

Clean Sweep 3 has seen a pretty heavy turnout at the Lyon County Fairgrounds since it began Friday.

Area residents have been dumping off their unwanted items in a fairly steady stream.

Richard Goza was helping his grandson, Roland Wright, with a dropoff but he tells KVOE News his turn may be coming.

“My daughter’s going to be moving before too long, and this is a good time to get rid of a bunch of stuff,” Goza said. “You can accumulate a lot of stuff over the years. I’ve been in my house for about 40 years, so I hate to see what I’m gonna have to do there. Maybe they will have another Clean Sweep when I’m ready,” he added.

Clean Sweep continues until 7 pm Saturday and ends Sunday with disposal available from 1 to 5 pm.

Just about everything can be brought in for disposal, save for extremely hazardous materials and either large tractor-size tires or tires on rims. Drivers of large items or certain full loads can go straight to the Lyon-Chase County Transfer Station for free disposal.

To volunteer, offer a truck or to set up a curbside delivery, call the Clean Sweep mobile number at 757-5044. Volunteers are told to show up with sturdy shoes or boots and also to bring work gloves if possible.
