RESCUE WORKERS CAN PICK UP DONATIONS
American Rescue Workers in Lycoming County said they have recently had to throw away nearly 30 thousand tons of trash generated by donations being placed in an area where they were damaged and became unusable. According to Rescue Workers officials, there was a significant loss of revenue since they have to pay 80 dollars per ton of trash. If you have a good amount of items to donate, call the American rescue workers for a pick up instead of dumping items where they could be ruined.
