The City of West University Place will hold the spring Heavy Trash Day Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Public Works Maintenance Facility currently located at 3826 Milton.

This event is for residential heavy trash only. No business/commercial trash will be accepted.

The city also will accept e-waste, such as computers, printers, cell phones, surge protectors, and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) to be recycled.

City staff will be available to help residents unload their vehicles. The city requests that donors approach the event from the intersection of University & College Street.
