Photo Archive

One of our current library archive projects is scanning the boxes of slides and photographs that have been collected over the past several decades. (Some of the dated photos go back to the 1970s!) 

We'd like to share some of the beautiful photos we've been finding with you.
For this photo set, we're showcasing some of the hard work done by past LRPC staff and volunteers. Here are some photos from a HHW collection on a rainy day in summer 1987:

two people sitting behind a table covered in containers of hazardous materials

two people standing in a garage, working on disposing of hazardous materials. There are containers of HHW all over.

A line of vehicles being checked in for HHW collection

If you recognize any people or locations in any of our photos, or have photos of your own you would like to share, please send an email to
