On April 24, Kenton County and the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force will join Toyota in hosting the region's first Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day at Toyota's North American manufacturing unit in Erlanger. The household Hazardous waste collection day is April 24 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. Some of the items accepted include paint, oil, computers and car batteries. Learn more about local Spring Cleanup initiatives here.
Another great resource is Kenton County Fiscal Court and Solid Waste Management's cleanup for unwanted trash, appliances and up to four tires per vehicle. Items can be dropped off on April 2-3 from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. Learn more about local Spring Cleanup initiatives here.
Of course, don’t forget donating usable items to a local thrift store or charity can be a good idea. We use Freecycle which is a great site that offers posts similar to Craigslist. All items on this site are free to good homes. Freecycle’s mission is to build a worldwide gifting movement that reduces waste, saves precious resources & eases the burden on our landfills while enabling our members to benefit from the strength of a larger community. You can learn more about Freecycle at http://www.freecycle.org
If you are a Peaselburg resident you may want to donate items to St. Augustine’s yard sale. One’s person’s trash may be another person’s treasure! To donate items contact the school at 859-261-5564. The St. Augustine yard sale will take place in the school gym on March 20 from 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
