“The street department concentrates on these areas on these days,” Middlesboro Mayor Rick Nelson said. “You can call 248-4601 to have a pick up. They do not pick up tires, shingles or metal. To have those picked up, you can call 337-7035 for that.”

When you call to schedule a cleanup, the street department will produce a ticket for the items that you are requesting to have picked up.

Housing and construction materials such as the shingles or metals can be taken to the transfer station in Pineville.

The Middlesboro City Council will have its regular monthly meeting Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers of Middlesboro City Hall.
