LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Do you have a car battery, used tires, or old electronics sitting around your house? Saturday is your chance to get rid of them at the annual Angelina Beautiful Clean tire and electronic collection day.
Saturday, you can drop of these items at no charge at the City of Lufkin Solid Waste and Recycling Center.
It's all a way to help your environment by reducing, re-using, and recycling.
"Each year we've been able to keep thousands of tires out of our landfill as well as electronics," said Maegan Prejean, the executive director of Angelina Beautiful Clean. "That could be old TVs, computer, what have you. We'll take those for free as well. We get tons of electronics."
You can make your drop off Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It's free to the public.
The tires will be recycling to make playgrounds or school tracks and the electronics will also be put back into programs.
