Annual Clean Up Day
Thank for participating in our Annual Clean Up Day event on Saturday, September 22, 2018!
With help from you and our recycling vendors, our community kept more than 34 tons of recyclable or reusable material out the landfill! Each recyclable item collected will be broken down by the vendors into recyclable materials such as wood, metal, and textiles.
