City staff give back with volunteer time to the community to share information about the services available through the Bureau of Sanitation.
Many residents were glad to learn that the Bulky Item Collection Program offers residents free curbside pickup of such items as mattresses, sofas, chairs, and other furniture! Residents were also exicted to learn that e-waste like large televisions and monitors as well as white goods like refrigerators, water heaters, washers and dryers can be picked up also! How great is that!
City volunteers teach a sense of personal responsibility through hands-on learning and illustrate the chasing arrows of recycling through the giveaway of mulch and small plants. Residents learn that the Green Bin collection of yard trimmings are used to produce mulch and compost, which then is used to grow new plants, help maintain soil moisture and conserve water. Recycling is that awesome!
