FALLBROOK – Residents can get a fresh start this new year by recycling their old electronics and old clothing/textiles at Fallbrook High School’s parking lot, 2400 S. Stage Coach Lane, on Saturday, Jan. 25 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Fallbrook Marching Warriors Band and Fallbrook Music Society are teaming up to host this electronic waste (e-waste) recycling collection event, with proceeds benefiting music students in the Fallbrook community. The goal is to Stuff Big Red, the 1974 trailer the band uses during its competitions, and Big Red can hold lots!
This event is a free community-wide service to both residents and businesses, and offers an opportunity to dispose of electronic obsoletes while helping reduce improper and illegal dumping in the town and landfills.
Textiles and e-waste items can be dropped off anytime between now and Friday, Jan. 24 at the Fallbrook Music Society office, located in the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce Building at 111 South Main St., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Arrangements can also be made to pick up a large number of items by calling Fallbrook Music Society at (760) 451-8644.
