WILMINGTON — An electronics recycling event was hosted by the Clinton County Foundation in the parking lot of Job and Family Services on Saturday.

“We recycled 150 monitors and 1,700 inches of televisions,” said CCF Executive Director Jan Blohm. “Approximately 5,000 pounds of appliances/devices with cords was recycled. The recycling company, TDR, was amazed at the amount of products our community unloaded.”

On a sunny and very warm day, “The East Clinton FFA was amazing unloading and sorting the recycled items,” she said.

FFA mom Amanda DeBoard directed traffic and helped keep everyone on task and CCF board members Brad Reynolds and Joyce Kelly were in charge of registration.

“We are planning a bigger event with Solid Waste next year,” said Blohm. “We want to add paper recycling, medicine/health products, and hazardous waste. It will be our next step.”
