KPAB volunteers collected approximately 6,900 lbs of junk at the fall Dunk Your Junk day — held at the city’s collection station on Saturday, October 31, 2015.
At the semi-annual event, 11 volunteers from KPAB and the Port Aransas community unloaded unusable household goods from 50 trucks and other vehicles. The junk was loaded into two 1/2 roll-offs provided by Republic Services. The City of Port Aransas provided two front end loaders and one tractor with a back hoe — plus five employees to help out. About 135 residents participated in the event.
