45 tons of trash in a day

Friday, July 6, 2018

Warrenton residents got rid of 45 tons of garbage during the city’s annual spring clean-up day.

Each year, the city pays for the event in the hope residents will clear out trash, trim their trees and shrubs, and get rid of outdoor things that mar the city’s aesthetic.

There were 179 residents who took part, dumping six refrigerators, 10 appliances, 16 tires and 29 tires with rims at the Astoria Transfer Station on May 20. Residents paid $3 per trip and the city picked up the rest, which amounted to $5,779.
