San Angelo Lifestyles

Eco-Fair and Waste Disposal Event

Keep San Angelo Beautiful will host its free Household Hazardous Waste event and Eco-Fair 9 a.m. - noon Saturday, May 22, at Foster Communications Coliseum, 50 E. 43rd St., for Tom Green County residents. Bring a valid water or electric bill for residence confirmation.

In addition to accepting hazardous wastes free of charge for safe disposal, the event will also have a bicycle giveaway compliments of the Keep San Angelo Beautiful Jr. Ambassadors. Ella Elkins, a local girl who has worked to save marine life by keeping plastic bags out of our waterways, will provide a recycled, reusable bag in exchange for every 50 plastic bags. Republic Services has provided KSAB with the reusable bags. Vendors so far include Decoty Coffee, Kona Ice, and food vendors. For more information on registering a booth, contact Charlotte Anderson at 325-486-3771.
