On Saturday, March 21, 2009 the Environmental Committee held their second annual Electronics Recycling Day. Between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., 457 vehicles came through, representing half of the homes in High Bridge and over 10% of the total population. In addition to electronics recycling, the residents of High Bridge also donated 29 bicycles and 5 sewing machines to Pedals for Progress.
