FAIRFIELD, OH – You can dispose of unwanted items along with junk and debris as part of Fairfield’s first Disposal Day.
“It’s also popular in other communities,” said Sami Brandenburg, the city’s neighborhood development manager. We are adding an element of sustainability and it speaks to our residents.
Brandenberg said the new approach could eliminate residents making multiple trips to multiple locations to dispose of items they no longer need or use.
