Saturday, June 3, 2017 we held a Household Hazardous Waste event. Almost 8000# was collected in addition to 900 tires, 2 Gaylords (4′ x 4′ x 4′) of electronics and a large quantity of confidential papers were shredded!

What a GREAT electronics collection we had Saturday, August 19, 2017! Households from all Missaukee County townships and cities participated for a total of  276 households. We collected close to 2 semi-truck loads of electronics. Remarkable, way to go, Missaukee County! Thank you to Missaukee County Sheriff Department (trustees) and our fine volunteers for their assistance.
