The free community cleanup and recycling event will take place on May 5 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Henderson Events Plaza on 200 South Water Street, near Pacific Avenue.

Oil, batteries, paint and cellular phones can be safely disposed of, as well as electronic waste such as computers or printers. Henderson shine discards items safely while also eliminating data left behind on devices.
