BOPA Collection – Sat. June 8

We raised a little over $120 for Balcones Park and diverted 1.5 vans worth of styrofoam/plastic film and a trailer worth of batteries, oil, paint, & antifreeze!

A Big Thanks to neighbor Karl Hanson with H&H Build and Design for sponsoring our Saturday’s BOPA Event!

Thank you also to our volunteers: Karl Hanson, Erik Harris, Dale Butler, Amy Dole, Sharon Reed and daughter, Garry Brown, John Marostica, and Lynnette Tyer! We couldn’t do it without you!

Thanks to all of those who took the time to dispose of their hazardous waste appropriately and support Milwood NA and the park in the process!!

If you didn’t make it but wanted to renew your Milwood NA membership. Here is an easy link

Also if you have styrofoam and want to deliver it to a neighbor who graciously donates her time, space, sanity to keep it out of the landfill (since it can’t go in the blue bins)… Email us at milwoodna1(at) and we will provide you the needed details. Some details are here

Start gathering those dead batteries, used oil and oil filters, leftover latex paint cans, and antifreeze PLUS clean/dry styrofoam and plastic film!

Because Milwood Neighborhood Association will be collecting Batteries, Oil, Latex Paint, Antifreeze, Styrofoam and Plastic Film on Saturday, June 8th, from 8:00-9:45am to St. Stephen’s Baptist Church.

We must close at 9:45am or when we fill up to be able to get the materials to the City site and unloaded before they close at noon.

We will not be accepting other household hazardous wastes including: oil-based paint, paint thinner or stripper, cleaning chemicals, pool chemicals, pesticides.

This event helps us to fundraise and gain members, so it is free to MNA members that are current on their $15 annual dues or donate $10 or more to Balcones Park. Not a member? It’s easy to skip the line and join online or at the event. We are also accepting non-member drop offs for a suggested donation of $10+ as a park fundraiser. 100% of the donations raised will go to improvements in Balcones Park.

We’re also looking for volunteers for our collection event. Sign up HERE or email us. We need folks to corral the cars, unload vehicles, load the collection truck, and assist with separating the collected materials. If you’re looking for a great opportunity to help serve your neighborhood, meet your neighbors, and protect the environment, come join us by emailing us at
