Events with Councilwoman Marilyn Parker
The Pop-Up Drop-Off event on November 18th was a huge Success and the largest one yet!
We had a whopping 927 vehicles come through – our biggest event yet! Over 400 residents brought documents to shred and almost 400 residents brought electronics to recycle. Nearly 300 residents brought bulky waste. We had an issue with one of the shredding trucks for a couple hours, but other than that it went very smooth.
Stay tuned for next year's pop up drop off event...
