Getting down to the nitty gritty


This weekend Denton will be hosting a city wide clean up in partnership with the Great American Cleanup.
Sign ups are Saturday at 0800 at the Denton Civic Center (321 E McKinney St). After a morning of scrubbing everyone will reconvene at the Civic Center for fun & free lunch. Last year 4 tons of waste was collected from Denton alone.

The Bulb eater: recycles fluorescent bulbs of all sizes, eyeglasses & cellphones.

The city landfill is offering free dumping for residents from 0700-1200 but freon appliances will be 50$ & monitors/televisions are 15$.

If you’re not in Denton please check in your local area for doing your part in keeping America beautiful.
