Household Hazardous Waste Collection

I have gathered all the totals from the Temporary/One Day Household Hazardous Waste Collection that I hosted on Saturday November 12, 2016.


I did not have someone specified to count actual vehicles, but it was a steady stream of traffic the ENTIRE duration of the Event which was from 8:00 – 1:00. I would estimate 250-300 vehicles…
Thank you does not seem to be significant enough for the success of this event and the people who come out to make it a success! I am extremely appreciative for your efforts to help keep our environment and homes clean and safe from the toxins collected.
