Recycling Event a Success!
On September 28, NHU sponsored a recycling event for our customers and area residents and businesses. The recyling event was very successful. Thank you to all of the participants who brought in products to be recycled.
We collected 4,036 pounds (over 2 tons) of electronic-type items, including computers, monitors, televisions and microwaves. We also collected a variety of 1,324 light bulbs. The event also netted over 477 pounds of ballasts and 167 pounds of batteries.
Through the efforts of local residents and businesses, much waste was eliminated from local landfills. The products will now be recycled and put back into use in the form of components to other consumer products. These efforts definitely help our environment.
We will keep our customers and area residents and businesses informed of future recycling events. Our next event will be held some time during the spring of 2012.
