News Media Release

21 June 2016


Eastland County has entered into a temporary service agreement with Progressive Waste for eight roll-off, open-top containers.  These containers have been delivered to sites around Lake Leon.  These large containers can be used by lake residents and volunteers for disposal of flood-related debris.  The County will have them removed when full and will resupply more containers for flood debris removal around Lake Leon.  


Some types of debris will not be accepted:  Tires, hazardous waste, corrosive products, and flammable products are not to be placed into these roll-off containers.  


Metal products and some electronics can be recycled by individuals at Erath Metal Recycling in Eastland or elsewhere. If a container is full to the top level of the box, do not add more debris.  Progressive Waste will not remove a container that is overfull.  Do not leave debris on the ground around the containers; please assist the recovery process by taking the overflow to another container.


The containers for flood-related debris have been placed at 4 sites around Lake Leon.  There are two containers at each site for a total of eight large, roll-off type box containers.  


The following is a detailed location for each site:


1)      Site 1:  Lake Leon Baptist Church, 2601 Hwy 2214, Eastland TX 76448.  This church faces Hwy 2214 and is south of Lake Leon.  The containers are set on the northwest corner of the church property.  


2)      Site 2:  CR 541 at Poly Wog Slough.  This location is on the north side of Lake Leon.  Go south on FM 2461 until it intersections with CR 541.  Go south on CR 541 to the Poly Wog area.  


3)      Site 3:  This location is near the Lake Leon Dam on the north side of the boat parking area on FM 2461.  The two containers are near the emergency spillway area.


4)      Site 4: This location is at the intersection of CR 437 and CR 237.  It is beside the Staff Cemetery on the southwest side of Lake Leon.  Go south east on FM 2214 until the intersection of FM 2214 and CR 237.  Go north on CR 237 until it intersects with CR 437.  


I appreciate Lake Leon Baptist Church and the EC Water Supply District for allowing the use of their properties for container locations.  I also again want to thank the many volunteers that have assisted residents at both Lake Leon and Lake Cisco.  Thank you very much to all concerned!
