Earth Day Celebration- City of Hoover Hazardous Waste Day

I am proud of my city for many reasons, mostly for their attention to the environment! I love that you can take your cooking oil to the fire stations so that it can be recycled into bio-diesel for the city's vehicles. I love that they provide generous recycle cans that reduce my garbage day needs to once a week, though two are offered. And most of all, I love that they provide a Hazardous Waste Day for the residence! It usually falls on the Saturday after Earth Day. 
It is so well organized and takes about 10 minutes! I keep a "hazardous waste day" box in the garage for old battery, florescent light bulbs, and other things to small to really keep up with.  Then on Saturday, I pack the trunk and head over.
So, City of Hoover, AL, I salute you for your commitment to the environment with logical steps that saves the city money, provides disposal from paints to old medicines, and protects the water ways!
All lined up and ready to deposit!
