Annual Denison Recycling Fund-raiser

  Another recycling fund-raiser benefiting Texoma Community Center (formerly Mental Health Mental Retardation Services of Texoma) will be held on Saturday, April 27, 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., at 510 South Mirick, Denison.  The Volunteer Services Council is conducting the event.  For more information: call 903-957-4865.  If you call and no one answers, please be sure to leave a telephone number on the voice mail.

 You do not have to be a Denison resident to recycle at this event.  There is no charge to recycle.  Items can be in any condition: damaged, obsolete, non-working or fully operational.  Instead of putting them in the trash, donate them. 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."
