Heavy trash collections begin

Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Sylvia Garcia and the East Aldine Management District hosted the Tasfield Community Cleanup last Saturday at the North East Community Center.

Area residents were encouraged to bring heavy trash and hazardous garden/ garage refuse such as motor oils, batteries, antifreeze, herbicides and pesticides and pool chemicals as well as other dangerous household chemicals such as cleaners, solvents, paints and stains.

Garcia said the trash collection is an important way for residents to dispose of items that while common to households are potentially dangerous to the environment and required extra caution in their disposal.

Harris County Precinct 1 also holds Heavy Trash pickup days. The next scheduled Heavy Trash Day for Precinct 1 will be April 25 for Sequoia Estates. In the event of bad weather it will be moved to May 2.
