From Sept. 23-27, Auburn residents can participate by placing food donations in bags or boxes next to WM carts by 7 a.m. on their regular WM service day. Please label bags or boxes “Food Drive.”

Waste Management will pick up and deliver the donations to the Auburn Food Bank.

• Non-food items such as diapers and toiletries
