The response to our 2017 electronics collection event was overwhelming !

We had 708 vehicles come through the event, and we collected 1,343 TVs and 419 computer monitors.  That makes this far and away the largest one-day electronics collection that Vermilion County has ever seen !

Our thanks go out to Bryant Industries for collecting, transporting and providing initial processing of the items collected, Danville Area Community College for again serving as the host for the event, the Trillium Staffing Solutions workers who unloaded items from vehicles, the Vermilion County Health Department staff and Keep Vermilion County Beautiful volunteers who provided event planning, traffic control and recordkeeping, and to Black Sheep Geo-Services for donating much-needed pizzas for the workers.  We could not have done it without you !

The morning was windy, and the precipitation was unexpected, but we were warmed by the patience and words of appreciation that we received from so many of the participants who brought items to the collection.  It made the time pass more quickly.

We plan to hold another event in 2018.

Hopefully on a sunny day ……
