Winter Clean-Up Day • Saturday, January 12!

Bulk Trash Drop Off • Hazardous Waste Collection Site • Drop Off for Easter Seals & Habitat for Humanity • Saturday, January 12 • 8am-5pm • MUD Maintenance Yard • 13905 Thermal

Here’s your chance to clean out that garage or shed before the weather gets really nasty! Bring your old batteries, oil, paint, and antifreeze to the WB MUD Maintenance Facility at 13905 Thermal Drive, Saturday, January 12, from 8am-5pm. The MUD is providing a trailer and staff to transport these items to the Hazardous Waste Facility in far South Austin as part of our continued Keep Wells Branch Beautiful efforts.

There are restrictions as to what can be collected and transported. Oil, paint and anti-freeze need to be in closed containers.  If bringing car or boat batteries, a cardboard box would be appreciated (but not necessary).  We cannot take light bulbs, fertilizer or other chemicals at this time.

In addition to the usual bulky trash collection, Ed & Kay Peterson have arranged to have a manned truck from Habitat for Humanity on-site for collection of re-usable materials.  Download a list of acceptable items here: Habitat Donation Guidelines.

Easter Seals is sending a truck at 4:30 to pick up donations of clothing, pots & pans, household goods, etc. as well.  Download a list of needed items here: Easter Seals List.

Please note:  Each Collection Site has different guidelines so what is not accepted for Habitat, may be at Easter Seals.  Likewise, paint is only accepted at the Hazardous Waste site (COA recycles and makes primer which in turn, goes back to Habitat).  Please check with volunteers on site and watch this site for more information & updates.
