In honor of Earth Day, Bourbon County and the City of Fort Scott encourage residents to participate in a county-wide, clean-up initiative that includes free trips to the landfill and other services.
On Friday and Saturday, April 21 and 22, there will be no fees at the county landfill, which is also currently accepting tires for free, and dumpsters will be available at the intersections of 6th Street and Margrave and 6th Street and N. National Avenue. The latter location will also have recycling trailers available.
Two dumpsters will be available at each location from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to accept household trash as well as construction and demolition materials. Dumpsters will be donated by Skitch’s Hauling and Excavation.
