Reclaim Breckenridge has planned a Roll-Off Day from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, May 30 and from 8 to noon, or to when full, Saturday, May 31, at Erath Iron & Metal, located on the Industrial Loop.
The County Commissioners are providing four roll-offs at the Erath facility. These tend to fill up very quickly and residents need to start early.
This is an opportunity for Breckenridge residents to get rid of their piles of trash by bringing it to the roll-offs. There also will be at least one, possibly two roll-offs located at the former Shelton Ave. Baptist Church, on N. Rose. Roll–offs will be located there to help residents living in that area, who are trying to cleanup their neighborhood.
Volunteers are needed at both locations to help unload pickups or trailers or man the gate.
Cold water is provided for volunteers along with gloves and for highway pickup on Hwy. 183 South, there will be trash grabbers provided and reflective vests.
If a volunteer has a pickup and/or trailer, that can be utilized to pickup items from disabled or the elderly, who can not do it themselves, call the RECLAIM number and let us know. That type of pickup help can be arranged by calling 254-522-5326, which is the RECLAIM phone number.
Help be a part of the RECLAIM movement that has been making great strides in Breckenridge.
The Stephens County Commissioners, Breckenridge City Commissioners, city workers and code enforcement personnel should be commended for the tough job they have undertaken in knocking down structures and clearing the lots. Those properties can be purchased at a major auction in early June and the property can be returned to the tax rolls for the city.
This is an opportunity for residents to help do their part to cleanup our city. Volunteers will meet at the Erath Iron & Metal facility at 7:45 a.m. Saturday, May 31.
Lunch is provided at a local eatery, which demonstrates their support by feeding the volunteers that day.
