WASTE EVENT IN WACO
The warmer weather makes it an ideal time to clean up the clutter accumulated around our homes. But before you start tossing old paint cans or used motor oil in the trash, take a good look at what you’re sending to the city dump. If not disposed of properly, some items and substances can be harmful to our lakes, streams and groundwater. Fortunately there’s a way to safely dispose of such refuse this Saturday for Waco-area residents. Please click here for more.
