  1. Heads up this event is at the Coliseum North Entrance. The full-time HH Waste site is an exit closer off 880 than this, so this is not particularly convenient to Piedmont. I had to register to get the address then ended up canceling the appointment – hope that this comment can help anyone else. It’s nice that it’s a Sunday so that you can get there if you don’t have flexibility during the week, but it’s not “near you” for Piedmont residents.
