LANCASTER—The City of Lancaster is committed to continue being clean and green, while providing a healthy, safe and vibrant community for its citizens. In support of Keep Lancaster Beautiful and the Great American Clean-up efforts, the City of Lancaster welcomes residents to participate in its upcoming Trash Off on Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The Trash Off is a great opportunity for Lancaster residents to clean their home, garage and yard of bulk trash, recyclables, tires, scrap metal, brush, and electronic waste (i.e. computers, kitchen appliances, televisions, etc.).
The event will take place at 1501 N. Dallas Avenue (next to Regions Bank) and features onsite document shredding at no additional cost. Focusing on creating more opportunities to become a greener city and reducing our carbon foot print, Goodwill Industries of Dallas will be on-site accepting donations of furniture, clothes, and household items that would otherwise end up in landfills.
Additionally, organizers are excited to announce that for the first time Lancaster residents will be able to dispose of expired medication. The Trash Off is a wonderful opportunity for individuals, groups, and organizations to volunteer to clean-up trash in selected areas of Lancaster. All volunteers will receive complimentary lunch and a volunteer t-shirt on the day of the event.
Residents disposing of appliances must have refrigerant removed and tagged by a certified technician. This program is open to Lancaster residents only with proof of residency. For more information on how to volunteer and participate in the 2018 Trash Off, please call (972) 218-1324 or visit www.lancastertx.com/TrashOff.
