Sullivan mayor declares July a month of clean-up


SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Sullivan Mayor Clint Lamb declared July it’s first ever month of clean-up for the town. Residents are invited to bring authorized trash to dispose of at the city garage, located at 317 S. Broad St. All it takes is a valid ID or proof of residence in Sullivan. There will be dumpsters available for regular trash as well as metal.

Participants are required to unload items themselves, and are encouraged to bring help if needed. There will also be equipment to help lift heavy items from vehicles.

“It has been no secret that our administration has been laser focused on clean-up efforts and neighborhood revitalization,” Mayor Clint Lamb said. “Typically, we offer this clean-up service a couple of weekends per year. Since COVID-19 delayed this in the spring, we wanted to extend the service. This is extremely important because it allows people to not only use our curbside trash service, but also provides assistance in ridding their properties of junk without charge. There are no more excuses for not cleaning up.”

Drop-off is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 A.M. until 3:30 P.M. Extended hours are available on Thursdays from 5:00 P.M. until 7:00 P.M.

Drop-off is available:

  • Monday through Friday from 7:30 A.M. – 3:30 P.M.
  • Extended hours on Thursdays from 5:00 P.M. – 7:00 P.M.

Unauthorized items include construction debris, building materials, paint, tires, ammunition, liquid waste, electronics, hazardous waste, air conditioners and refrigerators. Acceptable bulk items include household furniture, mattresses, large toys, carpeting tied in three-foot bundles, and appliances not containing chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydro-fluorocarbons (HCFCs). All liquids/antifreeze must be removed from appliances.
