Did you know improperly fastened loads cause nearly 21% of roadside debris? Secure Your Load Day is June 6, and to promote it, we’ll be sharing ways you can keep our thoroughfares safe and beautiful all month long. Our first piece of advice: if you have large or heavy items to transport, make sure to lock them in place with straps, rope, bungee cord, or netting. Otherwise, the wind pressure that occurs at high speeds will push them right off your vehicle! #reconsiderlitter (📷: Brett Jordan)

Stash the Trash 2021!
I have called and reported to code enforcement they kee saying they will call never do it's OK for someone to just dump their roofing shingles anywhere they wish and to leave their address also really and nothing gets done????
I simply wondering if your organization is going to have the electronic recycling event along with the pill drop event again this year. Also, are you planning on participating in the Sole 2 Sole shoe drive?
Thank you Albany-Dougherty Beautiful for sponsoring the shredding event. Was pleased to see how efficiently this team of volunteers operated. Two lanes of traffic were guided to the two trucks waiting for your paper stash. Drivers pulled forward, and volunteers would unload four vehicles at a time. Just that simple. Hardly no delay, or waiting at all. Thank you for your hard work, on a hot and humid Saturday morning.
When is the next electronics recycling? Besides the events sponsored by KADB, is there another entity in Albany that recycles electronics?
It’s 5:37 pm. The sign says open ‘til 6 pm. 👎🏻🤔🙄 #notthefirsttime
