CLEAR SAILING—The annual fall Stash Your Trash Day drew a steady stream of trash-laden Rockdale residents to the Fair Park infield Saturday morning and afternoon. The 280 cubic yards of trash and metal collected also included a first for Stash Your Trash, a boat. City workers dismantled the boat and tossed the pieces in a roll-off container. The day also featured steady use by the city’s wood chopper. City Manager Kelvin Knauf reminds residents they don’t have to wait for a Stash Your Trash Day to dispose of many items.
