Re: [greenyes] How Do Drop-Offs Do?
If you would like to hear from Drop-Off users contact the Northeast Indaian Solid Waste Management District, Ashley, Indiana.  They operate 26 drop-off units and have conducted several surveys of users.  I believe the surveys are on the District Web Site,  If it is not there contact Steve Christman, QEP the Executive Director at schristman@no.address/
