The LSWDD reminds Lopezians that Take It or Leave It (TIOLI) is open for shopping on Fridays and Saturdays 11-4, and available for your donation drop-offs on Sundays and Mondays 11-3.
The donation reservation system created during the pandemic has proven to be extremely valuable and is still highly encouraged for donations on Sundays and Mondays. Reservations help LSWDD not accept items that cannot be received or are garbage, which means better shopping! The hard working volunteers that make TIOLI possible thank you, as this new system is much more sustainable and helps volunteers keep TIOLI clean and organized. Reservations are extremely fast and easy to make online at www.lopezsolidwaste.org.
Recently there have been complaints filed with the Sheriff’s Department and Public Works that free piles are appearing at intersections, which is considered illegal dumping. LSWDD had a one-day, one-time event with free piles during the height of the pandemic, but they have not been sanctioned since. LSWDD asks that residents please bring useable clean items that you no longer want to Take It or Leave It, keeping Lopez litter free.
