Yesterday’s Hartford Clean Up Day was very successful with over 50 people and 10 pickup trucks participating.
This year we had an EWaste Collection day for the first time. This response far exceeded anything we anticipated. For a town the size of Hartford, the EWaste people dropped off 3 pallets and 3 Gaylords (4 foot tall heavy cardboard box on a pallet).
Greg Brown is supposed to call the EWaste people and inform them how much room they should reserve on the large panel truck when they do their pick up. Greg is going to tell them we need the entire truck.
There are two stacked rows of electronics in the highway garage each about 4 feet wide by 40′ long. We anticipate we have collected about 8 pallets and 14 Gaylords worth of electronics.
A few cars showed up packed to the brim with televisions and there are some TV’s that are unbelievably large and will not even fit on a pallet.
Next year’s Ewaste collection day will undoubtably be smaller because most of the town’s electronics stash is now sitting in the Highway garage.
