(Toledo, OH) By the numbers, Toledoans did a lot of spring cleaning last month.
According to the mayor's office, Toledoans showed up in big numbers during the city's first two drop-off recycling events of the spring.
During Party for the Planet at the Toledo Zoo and another drop-off event at Woodsdale Park, people brought more than 3,100 gallons of paint to recycle, more than 24,000 pounds of electronic waste, nearly 4,000 old tires, more than 7,000 pounds of paper to be shredded, and 16.5 tons of unwanted debris.
More than 5,200 pounds of clothing was donated to either the Salvation Army or Goodwill.
But those numbers don't include old TV's, refrigerators or other large appliances-- because Toledo's waste reduction program won't accept those items.
