Win a Rain Barrel for Earth Day
Stormwater Management is giving away a rain barrel to a lucky participant in the Earth Day event on Saturday, April 21, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. While you’re dropping off your big trash or recyclables, simply fill out an entry form to enter the drawing.
Rain barrels are a great way for homeowners to harvest and use rainwater to irrigate their gardens. In addition to the water being great for your plants, rain barrels can help slightly reduce your summer water bill.
Residents are encouraged to bring their utility bills to Sanitation Services, 501 Ash Ave., and drop off their big trash and recyclable items. This will also be the location to enter the rain barrel drawing.
The accepted recycling items are tires other than tractor, implement, or off-road; appliances/white goods; automotive or ion batteries; e-waste (items with power cords); metals; oils; and antifreeze and hydraulic oils that are free of water. Refrigerant equipment is accepted free if accompanied by certified Freon removal documentation.
Many items are free to recycle; however, some recycle items have a fee. Televisions are $12 each, monitors are $6 each, and appliances with refrigerant are $15 each.
For more information, contact Sanitation Services at 354-4317.
