Harlingen Trash-Off today being held tomorrow

HARLINGEN – There’s a place for what once was treasure but now is trash.

The City of Harlingen is hosting Trash-Off Day on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Harlingen Soccer Complex at 4515 E. Harrison Ave.

But there are some rules.

First, anyone who wants to drop off items must be a Harlingen resident and prove it by showing a current water bill and valid identification.

Second, no contractors are allowed, it’s residential only.

Third, trash must be delivered by car or truck and trailer only.

Suggested items for the trash pile are furniture, appliances (nothing with Freon, so no air-conditioners), tires (limit of four) and electronic devices.

What isn’t going to be accepted are hazardous waste, paint in liquid form, concrete, batteries, motor oil or brush and tree limbs.

Anyone with questions about what might or might not be accepted can call (956) 216-5200 for advice.
