The Clayton County Board of Commissioners will consider a series of Trash Amnesty Days at tonight’s meeting, which starts at 6:30 p.m. at 112 Smith Street in Jonesboro.

At last Tuesday’s work session, the board also talked about the possibility of waiving tipping fees for people who would rather take their items to the county dump in Lovejoy.

Resolution 2022-36 would create Trash Amnesty Days at “strategic locations” around the county. Proposed days and times would include:

  • Friday, March 11: 12 noon – 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 12: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • Friday, March 18: 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 19: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

The county will let people know what items they can drop off once details are finalized. The idea is for residents to be able to get rid of bulky clutter that too often winds up on the side of the road.
