Do you have a large item or multiple items you need to dispose of but can’t get to the dumpster in town? Do you live within Ronan City Limits? If yes is your answer to both these questions, then we can help. Call Ronan Town Hall at 406-676-4231 to schedule a pick up. Please note, this is to assist with loading item(s) and not a clean-up crew to rake or pick up trash. Our volunteers are happy to help load what you need to get rid of but it must be accessible and ready to go. Please bag small items if possible. Pick up dates are between April 24-28.
