** KWCB is getting this question: “What do I do with my old television?” since our announcement NO TELEVISIONS at the Hazardous Waste Day on APRIL 21, 2018.
1. Call Waste Pro at (850)926-7010 and schedule a “bulky” pickup which is on the first Saturday of each month (No charge)
2. Take the television to the Waste Pro facility on MLK
Friday 8-5 or Saturday 8-3. Charge is $3.50 per 100 pounds
3. Place it curbside (FLAT SCREENS ONLY – NO FLOOR MODELS) on your regular trash pick-up day.
Keep Wakulla County Beautiful, Wakulla County and ESG, Inc. announce the next Household Hazardous Waste Day will take place on Saturday, APRIL 21, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Public Works Operations Center 340 Trice Lane, Crawfordville.
As a reminder, when discarded improperly, many household products can pollute and pose a health risk. Wakulla County holds these free events for County residents and conditionally exempt small generators ONLY. Businesses and other agencies must call (850) 926-7616 to register and some fees will apply.
At the collection event, citizens may bring hazardous waste, in addition to their electronics.
**IMPORTANT CHANGE — NO TELEVISIONS will be accepted this year. Medical sharps, medicines and radioactive materials waste cannot be accepted. We do not accept bulky wastes such as appliances (refrigerators, stoves/ovens, washing machines, dryers, etc.), furniture, yard waste, construction and demolition debris, household garbage or Styrofoam.
KWCB is excited to announce our newest initiative –
REEL IN & RECYCLE – LEAVE NO LINE BEHIND
Beginning next week, we will be installing monofilament recovery tubes at all the county boat ramps, parks with fishing piers and waterway entrances around Wakulla County.
Improperly discarded monofilament fishing line causes devastating problems for marine life and the environment. Marine mammals, sea turtles, fish and birds become injured from entanglements, or might ingest the line, often dying as a result. Human divers and swimmers are also at risk from entanglements and the line can also damage boat propellers.
The Monofilament Recovery & Recycling Program (MRRP) is a statewide effort to educate the public on the problems caused by monofilament line left in the environment, to encourage recycling through a network of line recycling bins and drop-off locations, and to conduct volunteer monofilament line cleanup events.
Help us make a positive difference in our waterways. Share and spread the word.
The Adopt-a-Road litter prevention initiative, sponsored by Keep Wakulla County Beautiful (KWCB), enables citizens to show their pride in Wakulla and safely reduce the amount of unsightly trash and illegal signage alongside county roadways. Unkempt communities are more likely to have increased crime, decreased economic growth and a decline in quality of life. The litter prevention efforts of the Adopt-a-Road program directly benefit the community through litter prevention, greater civic involvement, and area beautification.
