SquarePlanIT Volunteers at Household Hazardous Waste Event

We recently had the opportunity to volunteer for Keep Ouachita Parish Beautiful’s bi-annual Household Hazardous Waste Event on March 17, 2018 at Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe. In just 4 hours, we served over 600 cars, collecting:

  • 11,680 lbs of electronics
  • 5,840 lbs of plastics
  • 635 gallons of paint
  • 1,000 gallons of oil
  • 3-30 yard containers of scrap metal
  • 2 trailers full of paper and cardboard
  • 1 trailer load of tires
  • 2 truckloads of shredded documents
  • Several boxes of prescription medications

All of these materials would have otherwise ended up in a landfill, so it was an incredibly successful initiative for our community. Our own Cameron Brister and Cody Lewis worked with Aundi Brown of Astro Industries to lead the plastics recycling area during the event, and we also captured some aerial video footage that we’ll be posting soon!
