Dear Front Porch Readers, From the Daufuskie Island Conservancy: The next Beaufort County Electronic Waste collection will take place the week of January 21st. Keep that in mind when you unwrap your new TV’s, computers, routers, speakers, cell phones, laptops, telephones and small appliances this Christmas. E-waste contains hazardous materials. As of July 1st it’s illegal to put these hazardous materials in our landfill. If you are a Haig Point member, please take these items to the greenhouse. Non-Haig Point members, call Karen Opderbeck (842-3456) or Eileen Pojednic (842-6770) to have your electronics picked up. ************************ From Holley Miles: Daufuskie Island Bald Eagles: Nesting season has begun. (October - May) I help monitor the Bald Eagles for SCDNR here on Daufuskie and I have already observed activity this season. (In the past we have had active nests at Bloody Point, Melrose, and Haig Point.) The Bald Eagle is protected by the Bald and Golden Eagl
