TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The City of Tallahassee's biannual "Cash for Trash" event will return Saturday, April 16.
This event, held on the third Saturday of April and October, allows residents a chance to dispose of large or hazardous materials.
Examples of items residents include furniture, large and small household appliances, tires (limit four per customer; no commercial tires), household hazardous waste and electronic items (including computers and computer parts). Batteries, cleaners, paints, pesticides and solvents are also accepted.
These household hazardous waste items can have a serious impact on the environment if improperly disposed of through the trash or sewer system, the city stated.
Residential customers with an active garbage service account will receive $5 credit toward their utility bill. Customers will need to present a city utility bill before disposal of items.
While customers can make multiple trips, only one credit will be given.
