— It's time to get rid of unwanted trash, out-of-date electronics and those bad tires.

Saturday is the city's annual Operation Clean Streets, sponsored by Edmond Beautiful and the city of Edmond.

The cleanup effort is in conjunction with the statewide Trash-Off Day, which is sponsored by the Beautification Office of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

Volunteers — families, church groups, civic clubs, organizations and individuals— have an opportunity to make a difference in the appearance of the city.

Volunteers are asked to meet at 8:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the city's new Administration Building, 7 N Broadway, across from Citizens Bank of Edmond. The cleanup event will begin at 9 a.m. and end at noon.

The solid waste department will collect tires from Edmond residential utility customers in the Administration Building parking lot.

Tires cannot have rims or come from dealerships, salvage yards, service stations, forklifts, off-road vehicles, heavy machinery, agricultural vehicles, tractors or backhoes.

CDR Global Inc. will provide the destruction of electronic devices, such as computers, laptops, printers, gaming systems and televisions in the Administration Building parking lot. The company also will offer physical on-site hard-drive destruction and adheres to all state and federal e-waste disposal laws.

To volunteer or for more information, call 216-7770.
