Vidor to host trash off
The City of Vidor will be hosting a Trash Off Saturday, Sept. 20 beginning at 7:00 am, at 155 Watts Street. Any resident of the City of Vidor or any residential customer of the City of Vidor sanitation department may use the roll-off dumpsters for free, with the exception of no contractors or commercial accounts.
The normal rules for what is accepted at the City dumpsters apply so no hazardous waste such as motor oil, chemicals, paints, tires, etc. There will be a dumpster to collect metal recyclables and the limb yard will be open for yard debris.
Due to the overwhelming response of the Trash Off in May, there will be a restriction of one visit per address. Anyone wanting to dump must show a proof of residency inside the incorporated city limits of the City of Vidor, such as a driver’s license. Residential customers living outside the city limits must bring a current City of Vidor sanitation bill. The dumpsters will stay open as long as there is room or until 3:00 pm, whichever comes first.
Anyone wanting to use the dumpsters or limb yard that day should enter Watts Street from East Railroad Street, adjacent to the Vidor Police Department. For Saturday only, Watts Street will be a one way street, and the only traffic allowed will be those who are participating in the trash off. Volunteers from the Vidor Beautification Task Force and other groups will be directing traffic and assisting as needed.
