Residents Rid Household Chemicals and Old Electronics

Local residents took advantage of two events on Saturday that allowed them to dispose of their household chemicals as well as their old electronic devices. SWALCO hosted a chemical waste event while at the same time the local Goodwill store hosted their electronic recycling event. Both were well attended as residents came from far away to take advantage of the events. By mid-morning SWALCO had already reported over 400 vehicles had passed through their recycle lanes and by 2:15 close to 700 had driven through. Goodwill was equally as busy with motorists forming a steady stream of cars even as late as 2:30 in the afternoon. Attendants were available at both events to remove items from the vehicles so the lines moved very fast.
