Have your neighbors and family been making calls to A&E network to get you on the show “Hoarders?” Maybe it’s time to take advantage of the upcoming Keep Whitehouse Beautiful Large Item Drop Off set for Saturday, March 22 from 8 a.m. to noon.
This event is open to those who receive city services in Whitehouse.
The area near the city barn is where, with a city utility bill, you can drop off large unused or not working items such as appliances, mattresses, grills, furniture and other bulky pieces that are not appropriate for the trash. Tires are also accepted at a cost of $2 each.
And, as well, STS Recycling will have a truck on hand to pick up all electronic devices for recycling such as computers, printers, VCRs and more. As stated by a representative from STS Electronic Recycling, “We can aid you in recycling out of date, nonworking, or unwanted electronic equipment. THIS RECYCLING SERVICE IS PROVIDED AT NO COST TO YOU. All recyclables processed by STS Electronic Recycling are either reused or physically destroyed and recycled. We assure you that your business or personal information will be destroyed to Department of Defense (DOD) standards and we will provide you with a certificate of destruction if desired.

Whitehouse received two red, white and blue Don’t Mess With Texas litter cans for use in the community. This program by TXDOT is in partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful. The goal is to educate and engage Texans to take responsibility for improving their community environment. Litter-free roads promote tourism, business, health, beautification and caring for others. Research shows that stress levels fall within minutes of seeing or working in clean, green spaces. Driving along clean, green roads makes anyone’s commute more pleasant. Keep Whitehouse Beautiful thankfully received the cans from TXDOT and encourages everyone to show they care by disposing of their litter correctly. One can has been placed at the Whitehouse YMCA, and the other can is at the Whitehouse Recycle Center. Pictured are from left to right (back row) KWB volunteers Hazel Bateman and Debbie Shafer, and Public Information Officer for TXDOT, Tyler District Larry Krantz (front row) KWB volunteers Beverly Casey and Dorothy LaFlure, Whitehouse YMCA Director Renee Quackenbush and Whitehouse City Parks Director Don Branam.
