LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Do you have unwanted plastic? You can get rid of it this weekend in Lane County as part of the plastics roundup.

On Wednesday, businesses, churches, individuals and neighborhood groups who signed up as “community collectors” dropped off their hauls.

"We wanted to shift the model to a more community-style collection, which is grassroots at its finest," waste reduction specialist Angie Marzano said. "We're really encouraging people to get together with their neighbors, their business groups, their associations and make this less of a carbon footprint."

You can drop off items on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Glenwood Transfer Station.
