a. Spring Recycling Event report:
The recycling event took place on Saturday, May 12, 2012, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the WLB Community Center. There was a large response to the secure personal document shredding offered. There was not a great response to the collection of general household goods which was offered by the U.S. War Veterans organization. Electronics also did not show as large a turn-out as previous recycling events, perhaps because more towns are offering electronics recycling to their residents. b.
