Electronics Recycling Event - Nice Job!

Judging by the number of cars and SUV's I witnessed Saturday morning at the Natural Resources Center, the Electronics Recycling event was huge success. As usual the staff of Cornell Cooperative Ext., Cayuga Co. Planning, and the CC Soil and Water District did a great job collecting used electronics and propane tanks from the public. The weather cooperated to keep the staff dry and enthusiastic. I saw folks like Bruce Natale the County Environmental Engineer, Our Watershed Inspector; Jessica Miles, and CCE Educator Renee Jensen all working to keep the traffic moving through the parking lot in a timely manner. It should be noted that Bruce has been one of the strong advocates and early organizers of these recycling events in our county. Great Job guys!

Please note the other recycling and hazardous waste collections later this year on our OWLA News calendar. These events are great ways to keep wastes and refuse out of not only our watershed but also from contaminating our groundwater.
