I’m proud to share the following 2013 collection statistics: household hazardous waste – 50,965 pounds; household batteries – 2,065 pounds; car batteries – 3,030 pounds; automotive fluids – 3,203 pounds.
This was our second largest Tox-Away Day event in 21 years, with 1,447 vehicles registered. A significant factor in this year’s success was the 3301 Wayne Trace location in Fort Wayne. I want to share a special acknowledgement to Bobick Real Estate Company for permission to utilize this site.
The challenges of household hazardous waste need to be responsibly addressed. The District wishes to share our appreciation to all who are protecting Allen County’s health and environment. Please mark your calendars for our annual Tox-Away Day to be held on Sept. 6, 2014.
Anthony Burrus, director, Allen County Solid Waste Management District
