Seward's Spring Cleanup Day achieved a new level of efficency this morning with the addition of "The Crusher". In the past Concordia University football players would unload appliances from trucks and a Front-End Loader would place them in a "Roll off" to be taken to a recycling location. As shown here, the Crusher has the ability to pick appliances out of a truck, place them in the "tank" and crush the material into metal blocks. The same "clamshell" picks up the metal blocks and loads them on a flat bed truck. In another area, computers, monitors, components, televisions sets, etc. were being collected as well. The community will be in much better condition for Easter Sunday as a result of the Cleanup. The project was coordinated by Scott Willett with the Great Plains Resource and Conservation and Development District. Thanks to all involved.
