BLUE RIDGE, Ga. – GoCo recently donated four trash receptacles to the city of Blue Ridge to use during Georgia Cities Week April 22 through 28. With the two dumpsters previously by Advanced Disposal, the city has six trash receptacles for residents to use during Georgia Cities Week.
As a part of a citywide clean-up to celebrate the week, residents are asked to bring any waste or trash except for items containing Freon, liquid paint or tires to three area locations:
- Blue Ridge Farmer’s Market (only small brush and bagged leaves in the Advanced Disposal container);
- Kiwanis Fairgrounds; and
- First Baptist Church of Blue Ridge parking lot on the corner of Church and East First streets.
Two other locations – Blue Ridge City Hall and the Ada Street, LLC property near Hampton Square – have containers in which small brush and bagged leaves can be disposed.
The city of Blue Ridge would like to thank the following people and organizations for their help with this clean-up during Georgia Cities Week: Josh and Erin Golden with GoCo, Richie Walker with Advanced Disposal, the Blue Ridge Kiwanis Club, First Baptist Church of Blue Ridge, and the property owners of Ada Street, LLC.
