FCCWP Recycling Program
A message from our youth 

WINGS is revitalizing our church recycling program.  Everyone knows recycling is important but a lot of people don't do it because they don't know why it is important.  For starters, we all pretty much know it helps the environment, but how? It actually prevents trash from piling up, making the chances of trash getting into the waters or in the mouth of an animal much less.  This is just one of the many, many benefits of recycling, some of which you can find on our convenient new recycling signs.

Please remember to recycle clean paper, cans, water bottles, and glass in our church recycling bins.  Remember, no tissues, paper water cups, or anything that food has touched (except rinsed out plastic or metal containers) can be recycled as it will contaminate the whole batch!
Adam Schellhase, on behalf of the WINGS Youth Group
