Deer rescue at the Oaks Landfill

Last Friday, County and State personnel responded to help a deer in distress that had somehow gotten into the fenced lagoon area at the Oaks Landfill leachate pre-treatment facility.

The deer had slipped into a lined lagoon. It could not get out because the liner was too slippery. Fortunately, that lagoon had only clean storm water in it.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources representative chased the deer around in the water with our small boat to tire it out. He was then able to capture it.

The men took the deer to a safe location to untie it, and it went on its way.

New Brush Lot Loader at the Transfer Station

new Brush Lot Loader at the Transfer Station
New at the Shady Grove Processing Facility and Transfer Station: a well-deserved Brush Lot loader! These loaders work all day, every day, pushing up the brush pile, and loading truck... after truck... after truck. The old loader will be auctioned off to get additional return on investment for us! (Thanks for the photo, Dave.)
