The City of Rockdale’s spring Stash Your Trash Day is set for 8 a.m. to 12-noon Saturday at Fair Park.
City Manager Kelvin Knauf said containers will be located at the park for free disposal of miscellaneous household items (old furniture, mattresses) which may also be placed at the curb for pickup on the second weekly trash pickup day.
Knauf said no motor oil, tires, batteries or any items which contain Freon, hazardous chemicals or liquid paint will be accepted.
“Free chipping for tree limbs 4 inches or smaller in diameter will be available,” he said. “Limbs must be presented in a truck or trailer.”
Anyone needing help getting trash to the park may call the City Public Works office at 446-5620 or 446-7320.
Volunteers with pickups and trailers are needed to help c0llect items from households, Knauf said.
“Volunteers should meet at the Mill Street Yard (301 Mill) at 8 a.m.,” he said.
