Don’t forget to gather up your “BOPA” items (including electronics and tires) and plan to dispose of them at the Blanco County Household Recyclables Collection Event on Saturday, April 24, at 402 Blanco Avenue, Blanco, Texas (behind Super S).
Volunteers will be accepting Batteries (rechargeable and lead acid), motor Oil, Paint (latex only please!), and Antifreeze, also known as BOPA materials, as well as your household electronics (computers, printers, etc.) and tires. Please plan to make a $1.00 donation for each tire.
Items not accepted include household chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, household cleaners, oil-based paints, paint thinners, gasoline, furniture polish, and all other chemical materials or substances.
Citizens can make donations at the event or participate in a community fund-raising campaign sponsored by Blanco County and the Colorado River Foundation. Community fundraising allows businesses, individuals, and organizations to make tax-deductible donations to help pay the costs of collecting and properly disposing of recyclables and hazardous wastes. Community involvement is important and a key factor in keeping Blanco County communities clean and safe. For additional donation details please contact Tessa Doehrman at 830-868-6082 or Paul Granberg at 830-833-1077.
