Dunk your Junk on Saturday
Keep your neighbors happy by cleaning up all that “junk” that tends to accumulate in yards, garages and households over time.
Port Aransas residents can dispose of all that accumulated excess during Dunk your Junk on Saturday, Oct. 23.
From 9 a.m. to noon, residents can take trash to the city transfer station on Ross Avenue at no cost.
The twice-yearly Port Aransas tradition, Dunk your Junk, is sponsored by the City of Port Aransas, Allied Waste and Keep Port Aransas Beautiful.
Volunteers are needed. Anyone who would like to help is asked to call event chairman Mike Secich at (330) 219-5991. Volunteers should wear closed toed shoes and bring a pair of gloves.
No commercial trash, hazardous waste, tires, chemicals, electronics, paint or roof shingles will be accepted during this event. This rule will be strictly enforced. Paint, freon, anti-freeze and other dangerous fluids also are excluded.
KPAB scheduled the event to participate in USA WEEKEND Magazine’s Make a Difference Day. Oct. 23 marks the 20th anniversary of Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of community service. In 2009, three million people volunteered in their communities on that day, accomplishing thousands of projects in hundreds of towns, according to the magazine’s Web site.
KPAB is a non-profit organization, whose mission is to promote public interest to create a cleaner, more beautiful Port Aransas through volunteerism and environmental education. The organization focuses on litter reduction, beautification and community improvement, to reduce, reuse, recycle, rebuy and repurpose.
