CHICO, Calif. -

On Thursday the city of Chico closed Orange Street between Second and Third streets for people to dispose of unwanted junk.

The annual event, Drop and Dash, collects the items and sends them to the Neal Road Waste and Recycling Facility south of Chico off Highway 99.

Drop and Dash will return next Thursday at the same location from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
