More Photos From Hazardous Waste Collection Day

Lots of batteries were brought in for recycling. My husband estimated a  couple hundred pounds of them, when he tried to pick up the trash can holding them:

We also collected fluorescent tubes and CFLs. I haven’t used CFLs long enough for them to expire:

Thanks to Metro Public Works and to everyone who participated to prevent more stuff from going into the landfills.

Hazardous Waste Collection Day

Saturday, November 1, 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Metro Nashville Public Works will be accepting residential waste (including small household batteries, compact flourescent bulbs, fluorescent tubes, cell phones, mercury thermometers and unused and out of date medications at the recycling drop off sites at:

Hillsboro High Schol

Bellevue at the MTA Park and Ride

Dupont Hadley Middle School

Joelton Middle School

Elysian Fields Korger

We will be located at the Bellevue location. Because we are accepting prescription medicines, Metro Police will be on the location. I plan to take the above prescription pills, since I no longer take them. If you bring in an old mercury thermometer, you will receive a digital thermometer. What a deal!

Clean Up Bellevue Day This Saturday

The Bellevue Exchange Club will be sponsoring a clean up this Saturday, November 1 from 8 a.m. until noon. Some of the items accepted at the Bellevue Center campus will be large items, fluorescent tubes, CFL bulbs, household batteries and cell phones. There will be a shredder for confidential papers, and a Goodwill truck for useable items.

Volunteers will assemble for roadside clean up during the morning. The Bellevue Rotary Club, Bellevue Community Church and the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce are also assisting in the effort.

I will be participating and bringing some household batteries and fluorescent tubes for disposal.
