About 1,000 Orange County residents took advantage of a different kind of drive-thru experience for National Drive-Thru Day, celebrated by OC Waste & Recycling (OCWR) on July 22.
Instead of placing an order and getting fries, residents drove through the County’s free Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers to drop off unused paint, old pesticides, used car oil, cleaning supplies and more without leaving their vehicle.
This week, 76 percent of Americans broke out the grills, Frisbees and family recipes in celebration of the July Fourth holiday. According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, 155 million hot dogs are consumed annually on this day alone, which is enough to stretch from Los Angeles to Washington, DC more than five times. Although Independence Day and summer days are synonymous with lots of food, sun and fun, outdoor gatherings and the season itself are rife with important recycling opportunities.
Making Orange County a safe, healthy, and fulfilling place to live, work, and play, today and for generations to come, by providing outstanding, cost-effective regional public services.
