Why Did the Electronics Recycling Event Shut Down Early?

A number of residents expressed frustration that the electronics recycling event on Saturday, May 18 was scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., but when they arrived as early as barely after noon the personnel and their truck had disappeared without explanation. The Banner reached out to Brad Marquardt, director of public works, who indicated, “The explanation we received from the recycling company was their truck was full and they were unable to accept any more items.  Next year’s event will be May 17 from 9:00 am to noon.  The posting will also include language that the event may end early if the truck is full, so people are encouraged to come early.”

This is obviously a popular and appreciated event, as in at least one previous year the same thing happened, with capacity being reached before the announced closing time.
