Dump & Donate offers wide range of recyclable drop-off opportunities

       The 10th annual Dump & Donate Day Saturday, June 14 will offer people a chance to drop off recyclables and to donate to charity.
       Sponsored by Harris Group Realty, the volunteer event will be from 9 a.m. to noon in the Coronado High School parking lot. The event has become the only time each year that people can access so many types of recyclable collectors in one place on the Westside. And, most of them are free.
       According to a Harris press release, acceptable items for free recycling are “large and small appliances, all types of batteries; electronics (generally, if it has a plug or takes batteries, it can be recycled); office equipment and furniture; outdoor items; new and used oil; aluminum cans; and hazardous waste items to include paint, stains, solvents, lawn, garden and house/plant chemicals, wood preservatives, cleaners, fire extinguishers, propane and butane tanks, antifreeze, automotive brake and transmission fluids, data media (including audio/video tapes, CDs and DVDs) and medical waste (i.e., pills, liquids, ointments, patches, inhalers and sharps).”
       Fees will be charged to drop off CRTs, monitors and televisions, mattresses and box springs.
       A chipper will be available for branches up to 9 inches in diameter.
       A dumpster will be provided for trash that can't be reused.
       People are welcome to donate “gently used furniture and household items,” the release adds.
       Listed as partners for Dump & Donate are Land Title Guarantee Company, Partners in Housing, Rock'n Roll-Offs and Colorado Mattress Recyclers.
