The City of Montgomery and Environmental Advisory Commission thanks the community for their continued efforts in supporting recycling efforts. The One-Stop-Drop for Responsible Recycling and Document Destruction Day was held on Saturday, September 18. While it was a lighter event than in past years, we celebrate every time we divert items from going to the landfill!
By the numbers:
- 165 Vehicles (2020 was 317, 2019 was 184, 2018 was 125)
- Goodwill filled ½ of a truck
- Collected approximately 100 gallons of paint for Matthew 25 Ministries
- Habitat for Humanity Restore filled ½ of a truck.
- Document Destruction shredded 4000 lbs of paper
- Collected and filled a 6-yd dumpster with cardboard
- Collected 221 pounds of alkaline batteries for recycling at Batteries Plus
- Collected approximately 100 planter pots
- School supplies and gently used coats and mittens were also donated to Operation Give Back.
We thank our participating partners: Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity Restore, Matthew 25 Ministries, and Operation Give Back for their help and charitable efforts.
