Waste Management Initiatives
Throughout the year, the Town of Legal provides Waste Program Initiatives to enhance the waste management system. The following are initiatives that are currently being offered:
Spring & Fall Clean Up
Place your unwanted items in your front yard! This will provide people with the opportunity to help themselves (for free) to items that they may be able to make use of. The Town picks up the remaining items and takes them to the Landfill. Please contact the Town of Legal if you wish to participate in the program.
