I get good ideas from following your blog, Andrea.  This is a nice community post and a way to touch base with your clients and prospects.  Thanks.

Larry, why thank you! I have to say since I started blogging I have learned even more about my community, I thought I was pretty good before but now... I have to know all sorts of things!

Andrea, excellent hyper local post highlighting this event. We have several like this all over Austin and it's a great way to discard stuff that has been accumulating!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (Realty Austin, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 6 years ago

This is a really good idea.  If I lived in New Milford, CT I'd be able to load my car up with stuff I don't really know how to dispose of.

It appears that your area handles these matters about the way Loudoun County VA does.  Since I don't have trash collection where I live, I visit the landfill weekly.  Most things can be disposed of there in addition to household trash.

Then about 4 times a year, they set up stations to collect the hazardous stuff.

We have a day like this from time to time. It really is helpful to be able to get rid of this kind of junk!

We have a day like this from time to time too, and you're right Andrea, blogging does get you to stay on top of the neighborhood events like these.

What a great practical bit of community info to blog about Andrea ~ glad to have a meeting get rescheduled so I can peruse your blog!

Here in Montgomery County MD we have an excellent system for dealing with all sorts of hazardous materials and such.  The recycling effort at the Shady Grove Transfer Station is outstanding and open to the public 7 days a week.

Andrea, people don't realize what a great opportunity this is to get rid of hazardous paints, cleaners, etc that have no productive use and can cause problems in the home and also at the time people think of selling. New owners do not want the colors to match the existing paint.

We need to have another of those collection dates in my area.  I have a couple things in the garage.  However, we are having an e-waste collection this weekend.  I'm amazed at how much of that I had laying around.  I hope you have a great weekend, Andrea!
