Local news

Attention locals:
Just wanted those who live around here to be aware of the Recycling Extravaganza that is taking place on the campus of Black & Veatch, 11401 Lamar, on Saturday, April 27th. This event will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This is a nice opportunity to drop off recycling items that are not collected by routine recycling drops/pick ups. For example, here you will be able to drop off:

  • Electronics (computers, TVs, printers, stereos, cables, keyboards, etc.)
  • Medications (unwanted or expired)
  • Confidential documents (onsite shredding to protect your security)
  • Cell phones 
  • Usable building materials (project leftovers or remodel removals)
  • Furniture 
  • Clothing
  • Toys
  • Bicycles 
  • Used carpet and padding
