Collections will include the following items: Computer Equipment, Cameras, Scrap Metal, Large and Small Appliances, Office Equipment, Entertainment Electronics, Multimedia, Portable Electronics, Video Games, Sporting Goods, Musical Instruments, Home and Garden, Non-Fiction Books, Vehicles, ATVs, Toys, Collectibles, Pottery, Cookware, Glass, Dinnerware, Large and Small Appliances, Fashion Jewelry, and Gold and Silver.  No televisions, office furniture, home furniture, paint, or hazardous materials will be taken.  Go to www.mhmrst.org for a full listing of items.


Harold Wright, VSC Chairman, states, "This is the community's chance to recycle all types of products and equipment. Your donations help ensure proper recycling of e-waste and save valuable landfill space.  Donations forms for tax purposes will be distributed to donors.   The VSC is working with Bubb Fund-raising.  Bubb Fund-raising conducts this type of event throughout the metroplex and then safely recycles the items. For your peace of mind, delete personal information from your computers and cell phones.  This event is not a garage sale.  Nothing will be for sale the day of the event. Anyone wishing to donate a vehicle must go to www.bubbfundraising.com and register the vehicle.  Please do not bring a car, boat, RV, etc. without registering it on-line."
