City of Memphis Solid Waste Service Alert

Important message from City of Memphis:

An Arctic cold front is impacting the ability of the Memphis Solid Waste Division to deliver services the week of January 15, as the ongoing severe weather and low temperatures threaten the safety of our team. Additionally, a scheduled delay was already in place due to the MLK, Jr holiday. We ask customers to present their carts on the holiday schedule (one day delayed), and we ask for patience as all customers may experience a delay in garbage and/or recycle collection through January 27. Customers experiencing delays are asked to leave their garbage & recycle carts at the curb until collected.

The City of Memphis Solid Waste Division regrets any inconvenience customers may experience and appreciates your patience. Every effort is being made to restore services as soon as possible.


KSANA Holiday Drives

Dear KSANA neighbors. The neighborhood will host THREE holiday drives next Saturday December 9th, in the Balmoral Baptist Church parking lot from 9:30am-1:00pm.

1) Our annual KSANA FOOD DRIVE for the MID-SOUTH FOOD BANK. Bring non-perishable food items to donate, bring checks (made out to the Mid-South Food Bank) or cash. Remember, cash donations are as good as any food donations. Our generous neighborhood raised almost $1000 last December!

2) We are collecting TOYS FOR TOTS. This is in support for the Officer Redd Library project. Bring new, unwrapped toys for ages 1-12 and we will donate them to this ongoing drive happening through Dec. 15

3) NEW! NEIGHBORHOOD JUNK DRIVE. The Junkluggers will drop a container in the Balmoral Church parking lot, and all KSANA neighbors can fill it up with anything you want to get rid of: furniture, mattresses, metal items, bikes, appliances, carpets, rugs, sinks, bathtubs, computers & electronics, old paint cans (as long as the paint inside is dry), etc. Do NOT bring hazardous materials, but almost anything is allowed. YOU have to bring it to the church parking lot. The Junkluggers will not pick items up at your location. Paid for by KSANA. Take advantage of this opportunity to clean out your junk for FREE!

If you have any questions about these three Drives on Dec. 9, from 9:30am-1pm, call Ann Meier at 901-848-2536.

This message is a heads-up, so you can start gathering food, toys and junk to donate.

We encourage everybody to come out and participate. Let’s have a great GIVING HOLIDAY!

(And by the way don’t forget the KSANA Annual First Responders BBQ Dinner this Thursday at 6pm at Balmoral Baptist Church)
