ROSCOMMON COUNTY- Sat. June 3, cars were lined up along M55 at 7:30 a.m. for the 9 a.m. start of the household waste collection day at the Roscommon County Road Commission. Scott Eckstrom, one of the 35 volunteers and coordinator of the event, said they had a great turnout this year.
People from all over brought in their batteries, tires, styrofoam, electronics, and more, to dispose of properly.
Since the milage did not pass during the last election, the waste disposal event is no longer paid for by the county and is all community funded.
This event takes place twice a year, on the Saturday of Memorial and Labor Day weekends.
