Crud Cruiser Helps Clean up Environment called Big Success

***NEXT CRUD CRUISER EVENT:  SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2012.

This year’s CRUD Cruiser was held on Saturday on June 2nd at Carroll ISD’s Dragon Stadium.  Residents arrived in an orderly fashion, no long lines, to dispose of any old hazardous household waste products around their home.

The “Crud Cruiser” operated on a “first come, first serve” basis and once the unit was full, the environmental collection center closed at its schedule time, 11:00 a.m.

Residents who were unable to dispose of their household waste items at the CISD location will have another opportunity on September 8th.  At that time we will also be offering document shredding and electronics recycling. Watch for more information on that upcoming event.

So what items and products are accepted at the “Crud Cruiser” disposal event?
