Harlingen Trash-Off day rescheduled for April

HARLINGEN — A rainy washout stopped the city’s Trash-Off Day last weekend, but officials have rescheduled the event for April 2.

The city of Harlingen will hold Trash-Off Day from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Harlingen Soccer Complex at 4515 E. Harrison Ave.

Those participating must prove they’re Harlingen residents by showing valid identification and a current water bill.

The city bans contractors from the event, and 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.

Not accepted will be hazardous waste, paint in liquid form, concrete, batteries, motor oil or brush and tree limbs.

Anyone with questions can call 956-216-5200 for advice.
