The City of Pratt’s annual Clean-Up Week has been set for Monday, July 6, through Saturday, July 11, with changes from some tradition procedures.

“Due to the COVID outbreak, the City of Pratt will not be picking up any items this year,” said Pratt Public Works Director Russ Rambat.

Fees for disposal are waived during this period for Pratt residents who will be required to provide a valid ID or a utility bill from the City of Pratt showing a current Pratt address.

Hazardous household waste will not be accepted at the county landfill, but may be disposed of at the Pratt County Recycle Center, 1102 South Main, according to Landfill/Recycling Supervisor Jason Winkel.

Items accepted for free disposal during Clean-Up Week are tires of 20-inches or less and other materials which must be segregated by category of metal, brush, mattresses, concrete and asphalt.

Land Fill hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.

Pratt County Landfill is located at 20261 SE 10th Avenue, 1.5 miles south of Lake Road on Highway 281.

There is signage to turn east at the Waste Disposal entrance, which is reached by a half-mile dirt road leading to the scales that are staffed by an attendant.
