2015 Fall Clean-up and Electronics Recycling Day
Vehicles were lined up over a quarter mile awaiting the start of the 2015 Fall Clean-up and Electronics Recycling Day
On a very cold, rainy, and dreary October 3rd, Dingman Township conducted its annual Fall Clean-up Day. While the figures are not in for the the rubbish to be landfilled, the recycling numbers are in showing that despite the weather, many residents took advantage of the event.
The heavy rain created a stream between the entry area and the unloading area.

And, hundreds of smaller miscellaneous items.

Over 5 gallons of consumer batteries and several car batteries were collected for recycling.
Mixed Metals and White Goods
Over 30 cubic yards of mixed metals and numerous white goods were collected for recycling. All freon bearing items will have the freon removed before recycling.
Because of everyone who brought these items to the 2015 Fall Clean-up and Electronics Recycling Day these materials will be recycled into useful products rather than buried in a landfill.
