NATURAL RESOURCES/ENVIRONMENT

2013 Holiday Recycling Day:  Purdue Extension Service, Southwestern Indiana Master Gardener Association, and the Vanderburgh County Solid Waste District teamed up to hold our annual holiday recycling event on January 5, 2013.  We had over 500 cars drop off recyclables, including over 234 Christmas trees, which were turned into mulch and given away for free.  Click this link to see some photos of the event.
