According to DeVon Childs, co-manager of the Beehive Center, appointments can be made for free pickups at residences or businesses and on a regular schedule, such as weekly or monthly.The center also plans to set up collection points at various locations in town and is seeking donations of containers that would be suitable to collect paper at the drop-off points.

The Beehive Center is an adult handicapped workshop sponsored by Southern Utah State College. For information or to set up collection appointments, call 586-7964.
