Household Hazardous Waste Collection
We would like to thank all of our partners and volunteers who made the Household Hazardous Waste Collection possible on Saturday, October 3rd. It was a beautiful day and we had a great turnout from the community!
To everyone who participated in the event, thank you for keeping our community clean and protecting our environment. Every car that came by played a big role in keeping Raleigh County safe!
