Home Stager with Stage-Show-Sell

Helping to protect our environment, Bloomfield Township has offered residents an additional service. Today April 19,2008 with proof of residency, the township hosted a site for droping off Electronics, paper shredding and Medication Disposal.

The event coincides with Earth Day and Clean Sweep activities.

At last count over 450 cars drove thru the line dropping off their items

There was also a container for diabetic items.

The volunteeer pharmacist said one of the bottles was about 50 years old. Darn it -- I would have sold it on ebay.

It's wonderful

What a great service for you Bloomies!  Especially the medical waste.  After decades of being told to flush old meds down the toilet, we now know that's detrimental to the environment.  Kudos to Bloomfield Twp. for being "green".  I wish that was a county-wide program.

This is a great community event and so good to see so many people participating. I feel your pain on the Ebay lost sale. That's how I am getting rid of lots of accumulated junk.
