Spring is here, and we’re working on cleaning out the stuff that tends to accumulate for no good reason. Fishers folks have the opportunity to take care of a few “someday” items next weekend, related to Earth Day activities. Since we often miss learning about these events until after they happen, we’re spreading the word a little further.
- Fishers Town Hall will be accepting unused medications for disposal on Saturday, April 24 from 9:00 AM until noon.
- Shred old documents for a $5 per box donation at the Carmel Police Department the same day from 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM. They will also be accepting unused medications, as well.
- While we’re getting rid of accumulated stuff, we’re going to dispose of some paint and other things that don’t belong in the regular garbage. The Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center accepts these items on an ongoing basis on Saturdays from 8:00 AM until 1:30 PM, and they have weekday hours as well. Indianapolis residents can take advantage of their own Tox Drop program at various locations and times.
- Only peripherally related, since it’s one of those recurring things that tends to get brushed aside: check those smoke detectors! Buy yourself some precious extra moments in an emergency. We’ve seen too many house fires.
