Tires, furniture, chemicals: Ditch bulky stuff at a Fulton clean-up day

Everyone has something. That one thing that has collected dust or piles of other things.

The city of South Fulton will help you rid yourself of that something on Nov. 16., the city announced.

You can pitch cardboard, furniture and tires at the following three sites:

• Creel Park, 2775 Creel Road, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

• South Fulton Service Center, 5601 Stonewall Tell Road, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

• Merk Mills Transfer Station, 3225 Merk Road, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will also be document shredding.
