Have you started your spring cleaning yet? If so, you can sell, barter or trade your excess household items at the Discovery Bay Flea Market happening in April. A Facebook event was posted announcing how to participate in the Flea Market to be held at Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen on Saturday, April 7. Tess’ is located at the corner of Balfour and Bixler roads in Brentwood. Remember, one person’s “junk” may be another person’s treasure.  

A conversation about where to donate household items and used clothing popped up on Nextdoor. So, if you don’t want to sell, trade or barter away your household items, there are numerous donation locations in East County. Some suggestions for drop-off included Hope House, located at 218 Pine St., in downtown Brentwood. They are open to receive donations on Monday and Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to noon. The new St. Vincent de Paul located in the Ace Hardware shopping center on Brentwood Boulevard is another new option for donating your unwanted items.

Speaking of excess, a few folks on social media were asking about how to get rid of unused prescription medication. If you have excess prescription drugs that you no longer need, you will have a chance to dispose of them during the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, April 28. The Brentwood Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will collect expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous. If you don’t want to come to Brentwood, contact your law-enforcement agency to see if they will be participating in this national event.

Are you in the mood for a conversation with Brentwood’s Chief of Police? The Chillin’ with the Chief event has been posted on multiple social media sites announcing the opportunity for residents to enjoy a beverage at Chill Tea and Coffee, located on Balfour Road, and talk to Chief Tom Hansen. Chillin’ with the Chief is scheduled from 8:30 to 10 a.m., on Saturday, April 14.
