MERIDIAN —     Man does this stuff pile up!

    Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m., Meridian residents can get rid of all those items sitting around the house that can't normally be thrown away. It is a chance to clean out the garage or shed of items such as aerosol cans, paint thinners left over from that home project, oil from those oil changes in the cars and many more things that can't be included in the normal trash pickups. The Household Hazardous Waste Day will last until 2 p.m.

    There will be two locations in Meridian residents can take their hazardous trash to be thrown away. One location will be at the Meridian Public Works Complex located a 311 27th Avenue South and the other at Dixie Bowling Lanes located at 3510 North Hills Street.

    Other items that will be accepted to be thrown away include, drain opener, antifreeze, tires, yard and garden pesticides, paints, corrosives, solvents, batteries, oil filters, fluorescent bulbs and cell phones.

    This opportunity is for Meridian residents only.
