Making Sheridan a greener and cleaner community, the city landfill held its annual “Trees for Trash” on Saturday. It was an opportunity for residents to gather up any extra trash that accumulated over the winter months and take it to the dump for free.
Smaller loads could be taken to the US Bank parking lot or trash could be hauled to the landfill on East Ridge Road. Darla Franklin was there lending a hand. She said for some, getting a free tree was well worth a trip to the dump.
Early into the afternoon, a steady stream of over 300 vehicles made the trip to the landfill bringing in over 80 tons of trash leaving the landfill workers with little spare time on their hands.
This year, people received a crab apple tree sapling in exchange for their trash.
