Earthday News

Furniture Collection Event Thurs Sept 12.  Do you have good furniture you no longer need and want to pass on?  We’re happy to be hosting a collection event for Fresh Start Furniture Bank.  They want gently used furniture to give to families in need.  If accepted by Fresh Start, it will go right on their truck.  If not, you can leave it at the Recycle Center for the usual fee.  See events below for the flyer.


Styrofoam Recycling Update – We are able to recycle only the styrofoam blocks used in packaging.   It needs to be clean, all labels and tape removed.  In the past we’ve taken food and drink styrofoam as well and disposed of it.   We can no longer afford to let the non-recyclable styrofoam take up space in our mixed recyclables dumpster.  We ask that you dispose of it with your home trash.  Better yet, we ask you avoid buying products using it in the first place. line-separator-green

We need you! Due to the massive increase in items being dropped off for reuse, we are busier than ever and desperately need volunteers. Please fill out the Volunteer Sign Up form under our Contact Us link even if you only have a few hours a month to spare.   If you belong to a social group, contact us about volunteering together!
