Another Successful Crud Cruiser Event!
The City of Southlake held its second Crud Cruiser event for the year recently and it was big success! The Citywide event was held on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at Carroll ISD’s Dragon Stadium on Kimball Avenue. Hundreds of residents turned out to bring household waste items to the Crud Cruiser for disposal. Volunteers collected everything from old batteries, aerosol sprays, lawn and pool chemicals, to paint and painting supplies. More than 5200 lbs. of household waste items were collected.
The event provides residents with a one-stop, drive-through location to drop off household waste items, electronic recycling and document shredding. Nearly 1300 lbs. of paper were shredded. We also partnered with Goodwill Services and accepted a large amount of electronics including old cell phones, computers and other items for recycling.
The City of Southlake DPS is happy to provide an environmentally friendly location for its residents to dispose of these items especially hazardous household waste products in a safe, hassle-free and responsible way. We are so grateful to our wonderful Southlake volunteers who were on hand to assist residents and the Department of Public Safety as they collected items for disposal.
A special “Thank you” to Cindy Robinson (pictured below in the dark shirt) for the photos she took at our Crud Cruiser event and to all of our wonderful Southlake volunteeers.
