All Johnson County residents have the opportunity to drop off Household Hazardous Waste at the City of Olathe’s drop-off event on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the HHW facility, 1420 S. Robinson Dr., behind Public Works and Customer Service.
October 4-10 is Fire Prevention Week. Did you know that many people don’t test their smoke alarms as often as they should? When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. You need working smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Working smoke alarms save lives. Test yours at least once every month! For additional fire and life safety tips, visit OlatheKS.org/Fire.
This is the last week for the Wednesday Olathe Farmers’ Market at both locations; Black Bob Park (14500 W 151st St.) and the Olathe Community Center parking lot (1205 E Kansas City Rd.) Enjoy fresh produce and homemade pastries beginning at 7:30 a.m. until items are sold.
The early registration discount for the Olathe Charities 5K has been extended to Wednesday, Sept. 30. Don’t miss your opportunity to run this inaugural race for $40. The fee increases to $45 after Wednesday, Sept. 30.
