Spring is right around the corner and it's time to start trimming the shrubs, digging through the attic and garage and removing the clothing draped over the stationary bicycle. That's right, sort it out and get it out of your life. The City's Garage Sale Weekend is over and for whatever you didn't sell WSNA's annual Dumpster Day on Saturday, March 10th can help. We have seven, count them seven dumpsters again this year for your convienence. The locations and dumpster monitors are:
1. Rob & Macco Long 1122 N. Freeman
2. John McGuinness 907 N. Baker
3. Jen & Kurt Preston 1118 W. Washington
4. Richard McHugh 1002 N. Olive
5. Cheryl Sepulveda 1423 N. Lowell
6. Ivy & Jay Poggi 1120 N. Towner
7. Tracy & Randy Simons 1310 N. Louise
Waste Management delivers the dumpsters around 8AM, sometimes earlier, sometimes later. Some years they fill up very quickly so make it a point to get up early if you have a lot to dispose of. Don't wait until Saturday to start trimming your trees. You might find the dumpsters full if you show up at 11:00 with a truckload of trimmings. Also if you have concrete or heavy material to dispose of, get there early as it has to go at the bottom of the dumpsters. You probably got a flier in the mail, if you didn't download it here. If you need more information, here's the guidlines for dumpster monitors with hazardous waste info. Remember it would cost hundreds of dollars to order your own dumpster and the City and WSNA brings them to you at no cost every year. The monitors are all volunteers so take them a donut or help sweep up after the dumpsters leave. Here are some pictures from 2015 to get you in a trashy mood.
A big part of Dumpster Day is free eWaste disposal. This year Tech Waste Recycling will be supplying a bin at each location for your eWaste. That's televisions, computers, computer monitors, personal electronic devices, laptops, hard drives, keyboards, printers, power tools, cell phones, copiers, fax machines, microwaves, electric heaters, electric fans, telephones, cables & wire, vcr's, video cameras, rechargable batteries, etc. If it has a cord or batteries, they take it.
Your eWaste will be responsibly recycled instead of ending up in a landfill. .
