Huge Turnout for Waste Disposal

(LaPorte, IN) - A possible record number of people disposed of their household hazardous waste, old tires, appliances, and other items at the LaPorte County fairgrounds over the weekend. The 5 in 1 collection day for the public is held annually in the spring and fall. Sacha Gee Burns of the LaPorte County Solid Waste District described the turnout Saturday as remarkable. “We’ve had our largest turnout in all of the years I’ve been here,” she said. Burns said about 1,200 vehicles had passed through by 12:30 p.m. when normally 1,000 or fewer vehicles turn out for the entire day.
