Site to host large-item dumpster

From Local Sources

FERDINAND — The Dubois County Sanitation Department in conjunction with the Dubois County Solid Waste District will begin providing a large-item dumpster at the newly reorganized Ferdinand location on Monday.

This dumpster is for Dubois County residents and is designed for large household items that ordinarily would not fit in a trash bag.

The cost to deposit any item in the dumpster is eight stickers per item, regardless of size.

Only household residential waste items will be accepted, such as chairs, couches, mattresses, tables or shelving. Any carpet brought in must be properly rolled and bundled.

No construction debris of any kind will be accepted, such as shingles, doors with frames, windows with frames, lumber, concrete, bricks or blocks, hazardous chemicals, etc. Electrical appliances or anything that at one time had an electrical cord will also not be accepted.
