LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -The City of Lawton is teaming up with the Lawton Enhancement Trust Authority for the annual trash-off day on Saturday, April 30.

“Oklahoma is well-known for being a community minded state, and Lawton is no different, and we have community problems, community issues and this is one of the biggest programs to help take care of those issues one being trash and debris,” said Joshua Leach, Lawton Neighborhood Services.

Trash-off day is an opportunity to get rid of your unwanted or hard to dispose of items. Goodwill will also be on hand to take useable household items.

The trash-off is Saturday, April 30, at the McMahon Auditorium parking lot from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.

You can drop off used oil, car batteries, antifreeze, scrap metal, appliances, latex paint, fire alarms and many other items. They will not, however, take lab waste, ammunition, explosives, compressed gas, tires on rims or a few other items. You can find a full list of what they will and won’t take on their Facebook page.

Leach says they are looking for volunteers to help clean the city parks. A few of the volunteer groups had to back out to help with flood damaged areas. Leach says they have enough food, drinks and supplies, but they need volunteers. T-shirts for the first 500 volunteers, trash bags and gloves will be provided.

If you have any questions or concerns, call Leach at 580-581-3467 or email him at jleach@cityof.lawton.ok.us.
