The City of Driscoll will conduct a city-wide clean-up event, funded by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, on Feb. 27.

The event will begin at 8 a.m. and will end at noon.

Residents are asked to bring items such as household trash, brush, furniture, microwaves, washer and dryers and computers and monitors to City Hall, located at 410 West Ave. D in Driscoll.

The event is free to all residents, but proof of residency in the form of a current city utility bill will be required.

Items that cannot be accepted include paint, automotive batteries, motor oil, pesticides, air conditioners, chemicals, freezers or refrigerators.

The project is funded through a TCEQ grant given in cooperation with the Coastal Bend Council of Governments.

The funds may be used for ongoing and periodic activities to clean up litter and illegal dumping of municipal solid waste.

The City of Driscoll was awarded $3,500 for two community-wide clean-up events this year, of which this will be the first.
