Residents of Excelsior Springs and other members communities of the Regional Household Hazardous Waste Program are invited to participate in a collection event to be held Saturday, October 24, 8 a.m. to noon at Liberty City Hall, 101 E. Kansas St., Liberty, Mo.
Acceptable items include paint and paint-related products, automotive fluids, battieres, lawn and garden chemicals, glues and adhesives, household cleaners, etc. NO ELECTRONICS or BUSINESS WASTE ACCEPTED.
The safe disposal of unwanted HHW protects water quality, trash haulers, children and pets, and reduces fire hazards and health risks.
For more information on the Regional HHW Program, call the MARC Solid Waste Management District at 816-701-8226 or visit the website.

The semi-annual clean-up at Crown Hill Cemetery, located on the southeast corner of Crown Hill and Wornall roads, and at Hillcrest Cemetery, located off McCleary Road north of U.S. 69, will take place from October 19-23.
During the Fall clean up all decorations will be disposed of, even those that are placed in vases, saddles or Shepard's hooks. In particular, any small decorations, flowers or knickknacks that people use to commemorate their loved ones should be removed prior to the clean-up week. Permanently attached items may be left in place.
Once the clean-up week is over, the removed items may be safely returned to the gravesites until spring, when another clean-up will be scheduled.
