WAUKESHA St. Vincent de Paul, 818 W. Sunset Drive, held its Just Bring It event Friday and again today in recognition of Earth Day.

Community members are encouraged to bring televisions, mattresses, baby cribs, car seats, paint cans and anything else around the house. Items that cannot be used will be recycled or disposed of by 1-800 Got Junk for free. Local businesses will also be present offering product samples.

Its going to be really successful. What Got Junk and us wanted to do to work together is to make sure that you can dispose of these things in a proper manner, not just have them dumped in a landfill or a field somewhere, Rod Colburn, director of business operations for St. Vincent de Paul in Waukesha, said Friday. Were going to recycle anything we can today.
