More than two truckloads of household hazardous waste was loaded onto Clean Harbors trucks Saturday as Keep Scottsbluff-Gering Beautiful conducted their long awaited collection day in back of Main Street Market.
Keep Scottsbluff-Gering Beautiful Executive Director Cassidy Baum says the Clean Harbors people were shocked about how much paint they received. Baum says pickups full of paint and cars with trunks full of paint lined up throughout the day. She says there were some chemicals taken but it was obvious people needed a place to unload unused paint and stain.
Baum said she would like to make the event something that is done on an annual basis and not not just every three or four years.
