|St. Tammany’s Third |
Household Hazardous-Waste Collection Day
In some ways, this was the best yet. Keep Slidell Beautiful really stepped up with volunteers and especially helped with all the planning that's necessary for this to work.
Also contributing were the City of Slidell and Slidell Lion's Club, St. Tammany Parish Public Works, St. Luke's Men's Club, Pic Recycle, Alpha Phi Alpha, Keep Covington Beautiful, the Slidell City Council, Northshore High, Madisonville Jr. High, LDEQ, and DOW Chemical.
Scott Dye, Director of the Sierra Club's Water Sentinals, supplied the great t-shirts and some other supplies. (He found us via a Google News alert!) Thanks, Scott!
|The prizes to the volunteers who came the farthest go to seven from Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio (they heard about us through The Green Project) and two from the YMCA in Columbus, Ohio! Thanks guys!!|
