ROSWELL, Ga. -- Roswell residents who have unwanted items scattered through their basements, attics and garages have two upcoming chances to get rid of them.

The city, in conjunction with Keep Roswell Beautiful and the city of Milton, will host its popular Bulky Trash Amnesty Day event on Saturday, Nov. 5.

From 8 a.m. to noon, residents are invited to visit the Roswell Public Works Divison and dispose of such large items as tires, sofas, refrigerators, washers and dryers, deactivated cell phones and electronics. Proof of residency, preferably in the form of a utility bill, will be required.

Participants are encouraged to arrive early, as past turnouts for the amnesty day have been large.

On Saturday, Nov. 12, also from 8 a.m. to noon, the city will sponsor a ShredFest -- yet another popular event that allows residents to safely dispose of secure documents.

There is a limit of five boxes or 200 pounds of paper per resident. Like the amnesty day, it will take place at Roswell Public Works, which is located at 1810 Hembree Road.
