The Dinner was a great success with Ellen Keefe, Executive Director of Westmoreland Cleanways speaking on the history of the organization and it's current and future projects. She showed the great work done cleaning dump sites and the many many volunteers that have helped. She then spoke of their work in handling other types of waste, giving county residents an alternative to dumping these hazardous materials. With the new laws controlling electronic waste they are taking care of this new waste stream. She also spoke of their work in cooperating with the Drug Enforcement Administration to handle disposal of un-needed and expired prescription drugs.
