A New Town Dumpster
A new large trash dumpster is now available (on the street below the theatre) so that bagged trash can be dropped off. The container is being emptied on a daily basis via the local garbage truck. Now, individuals who don’t receive weekly garbage service have a convenient place to dump trash. The receptacle cost was funded partly by a donation from ACTS along with contributions from several individuals. This new container is a pilot project, with another bin possible in the future and located on the other side of town.
