Vinton County Fall Clean-up Day slated for Oct. 28Free Access

The Vinton County Health Department (VCHD) and the Gallia, Jackson, Meigs, Vinton Solid Waste Management District are sponsoring a Clean-Up day in Vinton County.

The Clean-Up day is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 28, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. It will be held next to the Vinton County Fairgrounds. The clean-up is for Vinton County residents only. It is made possible by the volunteer services of Jim Woltz of Woltz Excavating and McKee’s Salvage.

Appliances, scrap metal, newspapers, corrugated cardboard, food and beverage cans, glass bottles and jars will be accepted without charge. Small household items such as food containers, cans, bottles, and jars must be bagged. No other loose trash, building materials, paint; or pressurized tanks unless they are cut in half, will be accepted. All appliances must be free of freon with a tag stating such.

VCHD received a mosquito control grant through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. This grant allows VCHD to accept tires at no fee during the 2023 Fall Clean-up Day. Those disposing of tires should make sure all tires are free of debris. Be advised that individuals are only legally allowed to transport 10 or fewer tires at a time, but there is no limit as to how many can be brought at different times. No tires can be accepted from business facilities. Once the containers are full, the Health Department can longer accept tires during this event.
