About the Event
You can bring unwanted, but still useable items to the parking lot of Grace United Methodist Church where the Salvation Army will be on hand to collect donattions and non-toxic e-waste. You can also place large items you want to dispose of at your curbside for the city trash truck to pick-up. The truck will be circulating through Bluff Heights from 9:00 AM to 12:00PM.

At-home curbside “Trash” pick-up of oversized items must be left curbside by 8:00 am on June 04, 2022 only! (Note: Open to Bluff Heights Residents Only - area map at: www.bluffheights.org/about)! Before discarding any unwanted item, first determine if this item can be donated to the “Salvation Army” team to be reused for someone in need.
