"Cash for Trash"

By  | 

City residential utility customers brought in unwanted household hazardous waste and electronic items to be trashed or recycled.

Participants received a "Cash for Trash" coupon. The five dollar discount coupon can be used on their next utility bill.

Kim Pedersen, who took advantage of the event, said, "We had a few things we wanted to get rid of and didn't know what to do with them because they are electronic. I just happened to see this in the utility bill and I just thought it was a good idea to come out and get rid of it properly and save five dollars."

You don't have to wait for the "Cash for Trash" to get rid of unwanted items. The city encourages customers to use their every other week bulky item collection service to get rid of large items.
