Here’s one more way to get out of the summer doldrums! Go through the garage, under the sink, and get rid of stuff you don’t need like leftover paint, pesticides, old electronics and computers. You can bring all of your leftover hazardous products to the free Drop-Off Event at the Oakland Coliseum. Residents can also drop off up to two mattresses and two box springs.
