It Takes An Army...

Written by Katrina Pope. Posted in IRC Blog

All of our events require the efforts of many people and the annual household hazardous waste collection is no different.  This two-day annual collection is a coordinated effort by the IRC working with Dept. of Environmental Protection, Dept. of Ag, MXI Environmental, Penn State Extension, Keep Blair County Beautiful and our committed participants and volunteers like YOU!  This is not an effort coordinated by one.  It takes many people to have a successful collection.  We need residents to believe in disposing of this material properly and to bring it to the collection (July 17th & 18th, 2015).  We need folks to help get the word out by talking to a neighbor, forwarding an email, sharing it on Facebook, or covering our news story.   We need volunteers willing to take time out of their busy lives to hand out education, direct traffic, survey residents, and breakdown boxes.  Every contribution made by each individual adds to the success of the event.   How will you participate this year?
