Each year the Newaygo County Board of Public Works hosts a Household Hazardous Waste Day. Equally impressive to the sheer amount of unpleasant materials that pass through the Road Commission garage is the dedication of the volunteers who spend the 6 hour shift efficiently emptying trunks and trailers of the unwanteds.
Some were first timers while others have toiled with the toxics for many years, but all put in their time rewarded only by the positive impact the event has on the local environment.
Well, that and the pizza.
Kudos to the county, the BPW and the Drains office for organizing the purging event and a special thanks to the NC Road Commission for providing the venue.

This is a wonderful service made available to county residents! I really appreciate the work of the volunteers. It is so well organized - like a well run bee hive of activity, the line moved along very quickly with volunteers moving this way and that, taking everything I had out with me lifting a finger.
