Many city residents have the opportunity in March to get rid of unwanted electronics and large household goods and appliances for free during the annual March Out the Trash event.

The city of Roswell Solid Waste Department, assisted by Keep Roswell Beautiful, is again hosting the month-long event each Saturday in March, according to a press release issued by the city.

It will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a different location each Saturday. The location schedule for collection of electronics and household goods and appliances is:

• March 7: Cielo Grande Recreation Area, 1612 W. College Blvd.

• March 14: N.M. Department of Health Rehabilitation Center, 72 Gail Harris St.

• March 21: Wool Bowl, 1800 N. Grand Ave.

• March 28: Elks Pool, Southeast Main Street (south of East Poe Street)

The project is open to city residents who pay a water/sanitation bill. People bringing items to dispose of during the March Out the Trash program are required to bring with them proof of identification and a city water bill (which includes the sanitation fee as well) with a city address matching their identification. A citizen is allowed to bring up to the equivalent of one pickup truck load of items each Saturday.

Acceptable electronic items include things such as computer monitors and towers, printers, microwaves, toasters, TVs, VCRs and radios. Among acceptable household goods are bed frames, mattresses, home or office furniture, tables and chairs. People can also bring large appliances such as stoves, refrigerators, washers, dryers and water heaters.

Questions about the acceptability of items for the March Out the Trash program can be answered by the sanitation staff at 624-6746.
