Best (and worst) anti-landfill event

On January 31, something remarkable happened: A line of idling cars backed up from the Crutchfield parking lot onto Route 29N, filled with folks just itching to do a good deed. Over the course of six hours that Saturday, locals dropped off 109 tons of computers, stereos, phones, VCRs and other gadgets for recycling.

We call this the best anti-landfill event because we’re tickled that all that cadmium, lead, mercury, flame retardant and other nasties will not end up in a landfill, and we’re proud of y’all for your dedication to the cause. We call it the worst because, Holy Moly, that’s a lotta crap to own in the first place! Crack a book, people.
