The ever-popular free waste-dumping program in Taylorville is expanding. The city council approved more money towards the program so a second month can be added to the program later in the year. The program allows Taylorville residents to bring any non-hazardous waste to the street department free of charge, and the department will then take the waste to the landfill.
Ward Four Alderman Earl Walters says the success of the first month of the program has led to the extra money allocated for the second month.
Walters says this program is an excellent way to help clean up the city. He says residents can use this program as a way to help their neighbors.
The next month that the program will run has not officially been set, but Walters says it will likely be in the fall. He says the city will likely set the next time the program will run in the next month.
