Well, the stats are in from the big Earth Day event at the 2017 Community Clean Up Day in the City of Wyoming and they are nothing short of amazing. Wyoming residents showed up in droves — the stats speak for themselves:

  • Approximately 400 vehicles went through the site
  • 15,000 pounds of electronics recycling — including 140 Tube TVs — were collected
  • 5,096 pounds of household hazardous waste was dropped off
  • 4,400 pounds of metal were recycled
  • 43 dumpsters were filled and
  • 60 tons of refuse hauled away by Plummer’s Disposal

Five Godwin and Lee High School students pitched in, and so did nine family and friends of City of Wyoming employees. And 44 City of Wyoming employees were on hand to make sure the big Earth Day event was a success.
