Last weekend’s hazardous waste cleanup sponsored by the South Central Iowa Solid Waste Agency was a record success.

More than 158 people brought chemical cleaners, paints and other materials for collection and proper disposal.

Agency Director Sara Bixby says she was very pleased with the turnout for the event.

5,003 pounds of chemicals were recovered this year, breaking last year’s record of 4,342 pounds.
