Conexión Del Río/Staff Report

DEL RIO — Saturday, May 28, 2016 the City of Del Rio in conjunction with Red River Waste Solutions will be hosting its annual city wide clean-up event at both the City of Del Rio Civic Center and the Joe Ramos Center. The event will be taking place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Citizens are welcome to bring their unwanted items to either locations. The City of Del Rio will not be picking up items at citizens’ homes. Anyone wishing to participate must haul or bring their own items to either location. 

This is a great opportunity for citizens to get rid of large, bulky items like old furniture. But, there are a few restrictions that we would like the citizens to be aware of: No liquids, oils or paints. No refrigerators or AC units. TV sets and electronics can be taken to the Recycle Center. Machinery such as lawn mowers and weed whackers must have gasoline and oils taken out prior to disposal. 

Should the public have any questions about what items can or cannot be disposed of, the landfill can be reached at (830) 703 5320.
