Earthday News

We change our open hours in December  – November 21 is the last Thursday evening we’ll be open until March.  We aren’t open on Thanksgiving and from December through February, its too cold and icy for us to be open in the evenings.  Instead, for those months we open from 8 to 11 am for both the 1st and 3rd Saturdays.line-separator-green

Saturday December 7 – Last HHP of the year.   We’ll be holding our last Household Hazardous Products collection of the year from 8am to noon on Saturday December 7.   PLEASE WATCH FOR WEATHER CLOSINGS.  Assuming weather cooperates, the entire site will be open for use.

line-separator-greenWe 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!
