The range of items accepted at the city’s annual Household Hazardous and Special Waste Collection Day is bigger than ever. It goes Saturday, June 10th, 8:00am to 2:00pm in the sportsplex parking lot.
Environmental coordinator Christina Beaton says the city has bee3n partnering with Recycling Rewards for a couple years. This year, they’ll accept the usual clothing, linen and shoes, with other things around the house.
“Tableware, cookware, toys, small kitchen appliances, vases, games, puzzles,” Beaton outlines, “essentially any small household items, décor, all kinds of things that they’re accepting to provide another diversion for this material.”
“This is an opportunity to make sure some of them items that shouldn’t end up in our landfill and taking up valuable space don’t end up there.”
And, with spring clean-up now a summer-long bulk waste collection program, Beaton says Saturday’s event could reduce the amount you put out to the curb.
