Starke County Environment Days Event Made Starke County A Little Cleaner

A trailer load of tires was collected during last year's event.

The Starke County Environment Days event was a success.

Starke County Environment Management Director Carrie Trent said that one-and-a-half semi loads of electronic equipment, three trailer loads of tires and one trailer of household hazardous waste were collected, along with two large shipping boxes packed with bottles of prescription medication.

A total of 467 vehicles came through the Collection Day that took place Friday and Saturday at the Starke County Highway Garage.
