(August 4, 2011) Frisco Environmental Services’ next Chunk Your Junk (CYJ) event will be held on Saturday, August 13 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  If you have been working hard to de-clutter your life this summer, you may bring many items to be recycled, donated, or safely thrown away.

CYJ is held at the Environmental Collection Center, located at 6616 Walnut St. Entry is from southbound First Street. All other entries will be closed. Because of time restraints, the line will be cut off at 11:30 a.m. to make sure all waiting residents are serviced... view map.

All applicable fees will be added directly to your next utility bill from the City of Frisco.

Resident as also invited to drive by the Waterwise booth at CYJ and show us your old shower head to collect a free high-efficiency shower head.
