The recycling shredding station stayed busy from start to finish during the semiannual Granville County Clean Out waste collection event on Nov. 21, 2020. The town of Stem scheduled its Make Stem Sparkle clean out event for May 15 this year to coincide with the next county clean out event.

OXFORD — The county’s annual Spring Clean Out scheduled for Saturday will give residents a chance to responsibly toss out old and unwanted household items.

The town of Stem is also planning an all-day Make Stem Sparkle event to encourage citizens to clean out their homes and yards of junk and tidy up the town.

The county Spring Clean Out will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Granville County Expo and Convention Center. Residents can drop off unneeded items for recycling or disposal.

On-site vendors will be accepting scrap metal, electronics, batteries of all types, polystyrene/Styrofoam, outdated prescriptions, books, paper documents for shredding, pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, flares, ammunition and other items.

New to the spring event is the collection of paint and household chemicals, which had typically been accepted only at the fall recycle events.

“This event provides an opportunity for everyone to properly dispose of and potentially recycle waste in our county,” said Granville County recycling and sustainability coordinator Teresa Baker. “We have had much interest in the past, and participation continues to build each year. We invite everyone to come out and bring their recyclables and waste materials on May 15 as we work together to protect our environment.”

Last year’s county-wide event resulted in the collection of more than 5,000 pounds of shredded paper, 4,500 pounds of electronics and televisions, 800 pounds of hardback books, 185 pounds of medications and sharp syringes, almost 1,000 pounds of scrap metal and an entire pallet of batteries.

The 2021 event will include a convenient drive-through collection service, so that participants can remain in the safety of their own vehicles.

The Humane Society of Granville County will also be available to collect dog and cat food, crates, dog houses, leashes, collars, towels and flea/tick prevention.

As in previous years, a follow-up event is also being planned for in the fall.
