The Whitehouse Large Item Roundup ( also known as Clean Whitehouse Day ) is fast approaching, and the weather is perfect to go through your house and look for those broken, outdated and replaced items such as appliances, furniture, outdoor furniture and grills, mattresses and toys, according to Event Coordinator Eddie Ray. In addition to these items, a whole new set of items are now being accepted, electronic stuff! A local company, STS Electronic Recycling will have a truck on site for residents wishing to drop off old and broken electronic equipment. Items such as monitors, computers, cell phones, radios, fax machines, digital cameras and more are accepted. A full list of items accepted is below this article. Tires are welcome too, for a $2 disposal fee. Yard waste, construction debris, paints and chemicals are NOT ALLOWED.
The Whitehouse Large Item Roundup is scheduled for Saturday, March 24th from 8:00am – 12:00pm at the Whitehouse Recycle Center, on Railroad Avenue south of FM 346. This is a twice yearly event sponsored by the City of Whitehouse and Keep Whitehouse Beautiful for the benefit of Whitehouse residents.
