Foster Earth Day Cleanup, part 2

The results are in:

We did about 275 people and we disposed of 20,407 pounds of household hazardous waste, included was 9 thermostats and  15 pounds of mercury, 150 pounds of bulbs, 75 pounds of CFLs and 15 pounds of sharps.  Also this number does not include any paint disposed of under the Paintcare program (probably another 12,000 pounds)!

It cost the town nothing – but the RI Resource Recovery Corp spent almost $15000 to run this.

Thanks residents of Foster!
