We used the rolling carts to remove BOPA (batteries, oil, paint and anti-freeze) from citizens' vehicles as they drove up and then drove to the next station to have their E Waste removed from their vehicle as well. Great volunteers and excellent team work.

In the background you can see the special boxes with the orange liners for gallon paint cans. Once the boxes were filled with gallon cans of paint, the boxes were closed and put on the BOPA truck to be hauled back to the Environmental Center for recycling. We collected 1720 gallons of paint! All of this was done in four hours--WOW

All of the electronic waste was sorted and then placed on palates and then brought back to the main center to be broken down for recycling. We collected over 32,041 lbs of E Waste that day!
