City of Exeter to hold low-cost clean up
days from Oct. 24-26
The City of Exeter will be holding low-cost clean up days later this month. The City’s Public Works Department will be accepting yard waste and general refuse starting Thursday, Oct. 24 continuing through Saturday, Oct. 26 at the City’s Corporation Yard, located at 350 W. Firebaugh Ave. The yard will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A $5 fee will be charged for each truck load. A truck and trailer will be counted as two loads. Vehicles in excess of 1-ton will not be accepted. Exeter residents living within the City limits that receive water and trash service are encouraged to take advantage of this low cost opportunity to get rid of the following:
•Yard Waste: Yard trimmings, grass clippings, leaves, wood scraps. Palm fronds, Yucca plants and Cactus are not considered green waste and must be dumped in the designated bins.
• General Refuse: Old couches, mattresses, appliances, or other unwanted items. Cement, tires, paint, chemicals and asphalt will not be accepted.
• E-Waste: In conjunction with the City’s clean up event, Community Service and Employment Training, Inc. (CSET), will be accepting old computers, monitors, television sets and other out-dated, unusable or unwanted electronic items.
To expedite the unloading of vehicles, we ask that you separate metal, green waste, cardboard, newspaper, appliances, computers and other materials. These items will be placed in the appropriate bins, not on the ground. No dump trucks or dump trailers allowed. A driver’s license and current water bill will be required to verify residency as dumping privileges are reserved for residents living within the City limits that receive water and trash service. For more information, call the Exeter Public Works Department at 559-592-3318.
In the Oct. 16, 2013 article titled “EUSD votes down health insur.,” there were several statements which need to be corrected. The opening sentence should have read “the Exeter Unified School District Board quietly decided not to give themselves district-funded health benefits.” Trustee Ray Strable made a motion to offer board members health benefits with the motion failing 2-4, meaning two ayes in favor of offering health benefits and four nays in opposition. The Sun-Gazette apologizes for any confusion this may have caused our readers.
