Perkins residents will have an opportunity to purge unwanted and unused items from their closets and garages during the annual Clean-Up Day. The event will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2020.
The event features an opportunity for town residents to drop off large items free of charge at special dumpsters. Larger items, which cannot fit into garage trucks, can be taken to the large dumpsters located at the City’s West Shop at 319 E. Industrial (Knipe St., and Industrial).
The large item dumpsters are available only to Perkins residents. In the past, many out-of-town residents used the opportunity to bring trash into town during the event. People who come to drop off items in the dumpsters will be required to prove their residency by showing their driver’s license or any utility bill showing an address.
