Recycle Your Batteries In Exeter

Did you know that battery recycling is available in Exeter?

Courtesy of Public Health Solutions, Exeter has a box available for you to use to recycle your regular household batteries. This will hold all types of AAA, AA, C, D, 9V and other household batteries. Batteries from portable phones and cell phones may also be recycled as well as hearing aid batteries.

The box (and several more boxes) are on hand at the Exeter Public Library for you to place your batteries in. Please make sure you read and follow the directions that are available with the box.

Just another opportunity to make a difference for our future!

Skyline of Exeter continues to change

Now visible from outside of town, the new bin at the Farmer's Cooperative continues to grow and impact the skyline of Exeter. The bin will be 80 feet in diameter and 140 feet high when completed.

Cement trucks make daily trips to Exeter to fill up the rings, trucks on either side of the bin unload their payload into special lifts that draw them up and then they spin around placing the concrete around the three rings that make up the daily progress.

The bin will have over 200 pilings up to 70 feet deep. During construction over 575,000 pounds of rebar and steel will be placed in the 2600 yards of concrete that will be used.

The Cooperative expects to store 620,000 bushels in the new concrete tube.
