EARTH DAY CELEBRATION AT IKEA (7171 IKEA Dr) - 11 A.M. TO 12 P.M.
Volunteers are encouraged to meet back at IKEA after the clean-up for a FREE lunch, provided by IKEA, while supplies last. There will also be family-friendly entertainment including a raffle and meet-and-greet with Rufus the Recycling Dog. Plus - new this year is the "Unusual Item Contest!" Volunteers should bring their "most unusual" litter item found back to IKEA. Winner of this contest will receive a gift card from IKEA. Raffle and Unusual Item Contest begin at 11:30 a.m.
Your limited-edition, safety-green t-shirt is your FREE ticket to all of the Earth Day fun!
Don't forget, during this event all Adopt-A-Street participants must clean their adopted areas.
Frisco ISD students may register with their school's Recycling Coordinator and clean around their school.
All volunteers must sign a waiver form before doing the clean-up, either in advance or on site at IKEA.
CHUNK YOUR JUNK
The next Chunk Your Junk will happen on Saturday, April 25 alongside the Clean It and Green It Earth Day event. Please note that our Environmental Collection Center at 6616 Walnut Street will be CLOSED April 25.
Chunk Your Junk will take place from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. at IKEA (7171 IKEA Drive). Frisco residents with a utility billing account can donate, recycle or throw away common household items. For a list of acceptable items and loading order, CLICK HERE. VIEW MAP HERE. This April's Chunk Your Junk event is brought to you by a partnership between the City of Frisco's Environmental Services, IKEA and Progressive Waste Solutions.
Don't want to wait? Visit our Environmental Collection Center on Wed 2-6 p.m. and Sat from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Learn more about what we accept during open hours.
Trash can be taken to the Custer Transfer Station at 9901 Custer Road in Plano, open Mon-Sat 8am-4pm. Please bring your driver's license and a current Frisco water bill with matching address when you visit.
Please note: we ask that residents do not drop off ANY items outside of our Environmental Collection Center or Environmental Services when we are CLOSED. Many people do not realize that this is considered ILLEGAL DUMPING and may be prosecuted as such. One reason for this is that items dumped outside of Environmental Services, especially dangerous chemicals, may become a nuisance and pose harm to children and/or animals.
If our gate is closed and locked, this means that our facilities are CLOSED and we are unable to accept items until we reopen to the public. Even if inclement weather forces the Environmental Collection Center to close, the illegal dumping rules still apply. We appreciate residents' understanding in this matter. If you have questions or would like to verify the Collection Center's hours, please feel free to call us at 972-292-5900 or email us at EnvironmentalServices@FriscoTexas.gov.
