Thanks to all for a great Clean Up and Livability/Litter Patrol Day

We recycled:
1,000 lbs of scrapmetal - Hauling by Juan
10 cubic yards of styrofoam - it all went to Agliyx in Tigard
Tech Net took in about 32 electronic items to recycle or fix for resuse
Les Schwab came and took 36 tires for recycling
The Community Warehouse got 2 chairs, 1 couch, 3 metal bed frames, and 2 mattress/boxspring sets
Scrap got wrapping paper
The ReBuilding Center took a toilet, metal frames, clean wood
In the SWAP area, the Buy Nothing Group helped everyone find a treasure, over 50 people contributed and then found something worth taking home - some came back more than once.
And, for those items too old and tired and used - we sent 2 dumpsters out to the Metro Dump
The Livability/Litter Patrol pick up litter and such along Greeley, Lombard, around Arbor Lodge Park, and Dekum - thank you!
