The City of Frisco set a record last year, as it welcomed a total of 5,076 visitors to its Environmental Collection Center. These residents helped the community divert a huge amount of electronic and potentially hazardous waste from local landfills.

Among the items collected: 8.7 tons of batteries, 58.4 tons of electronic waste (new city record), 89.5 tons of chemicals (new city record) and  13.4 tons of cooking and motor oil (another new record).
