“It’s getting out of hand,” summed Mansfield’s Mayor Mike Gipson. Mattresses, old swing sets, shingles, and other items that simply do not belong are littering the area the city has designated as a brush pile.
It’s a free service to the residents and if it continues to be a problem we would have to close it down,” remarked Gipson. Most rural towns have quit offering the service for similar reasons. Not only are the unwanted items unsightly, they are also time consuming to city employees who have to remove and dispose of the items.
Simply put, people need to adhere to the “brush only” sign. Gipson added that “most who do use it, do so responsibly.” Noting that “it is a great help, not only to the townspeople, but also to the community and school.”
