Recycle That Collection Bin:  The Recycle That book, textile, & household item collection bin in our parking lot continues to generate funds that support scholarships to the 6th grade environmental camp.  We receive $.07 for each pound collected from the bin.  Last month, we received a check for donations July through September for $214.42 bringing our total for the previous 12 months to $846.98.  The total amount raised by the bin since January 2013 is $5241.93!  And that is for items that would be thrown away.

Items that can be placed in our bin include:

  • Books
  • CDs, DVDs
  • Clothing
  • Shoes
  • Linens
  • Small appliances
  • Dishes
  • Silverware
  • Utensils
