: Guymon's Annual Spring Cleanup
The City of Guymon is hosting their bi-annual Community-wide clean up Saturday, April 5. This event is part of a national community beautification effort known as the Great American Cleanup, hosted statewide by Keep Oklahoma Beautiful and sponsored by Devon.
All residents are encouraged to participate, be it an individual or group project. Past projects include litter removal from a park or schoolyard, trash removal along streets, transferring illegally dumped items from alleys and other public areas, but also include planting trees, flowers or shrubs, painting park picnic areas or public youth facilities.
Trash bags will be available free of charge to those who wish to participate in this year’s event.
In addition to trash bags, roll off dumpsters and a trailer for household hazardous materials and electronics waste will be in the parking lot of the Seward County Receptacle site, located on 12th Street at 823 N.E. 12th. The trailer for household haz-mat and e-waste will only be there from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 5.
The City of Guymon Transfer Station will be open for free disposal of trash, debris, and large loads from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on this day.
“This will be the first Saturday to be open for the summer,” Sanitation Director Karen Rice said. “After the community clean up, we will then be open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.”
Use of the Transfer Station is free to all Guymon residents on this day, and they must have an ID and a utility bill for proof of residency, Rice said. “Also, there is a disposal limit of four tires per person.”
After the clean-up, the transfer station will still provide free use to residents for disposal of loads up to 1,000 lbs. Loads beyond that weight will have a fee.
