Texas Trash Off, electronics recycling scheduled March 25

Mar. 18—Interested in some spring cleaning?

The City of Greenville and Keep Greenville Beautiful are offering local residents two opportunities next weekend.

One event will allow for the safe and free disposal of personal electronic and computer devices. The other is a call to volunteers to help clean up trash from areas across the city.

The city and Keep Greenville Beautiful have scheduled a free electronic and computer recycling event next Saturday, March 25, at the GEUS parking lot, 2810 Wesley St., in Greenville. The event will continue until noon or until such time as the truck on site is filled.

Accepted during the event will be computers, laptops, cell phones, electronic games and entertainment equipment, cables, wiring, chargers, lithium batteries, monitors, tablets, small household electronic items, copiers, fax machines, DVD and VHS players, game controllers and more.

There is a limit of two televisions per car, or one projection screen.

An inclusive list is available by calling 817-300-6958.

Volunteers will unload the items from each vehicle.

The event will not accept tires, paints, mattresses or hazardous chemicals. No paper shredding will be allowed at the event.

Earlier that morning the annual Texas Trash Off is scheduled.

Teams, individuals and small groups are invited to take part in the observance.

Participants are asked to check in at the GEUS parking lot at 8 a.m. March 25 to sign in and receive their supplies and instructions before going out into the community to collect trash.

Volunteer teams are asked to bring sunscreen, protective work gloves and water. Those wanting additional information can call and/or text Keep Greenville Beautiful at 903-441-1399 or email keepgreenvillebeautifultx@gmail.com
