Please excuse the more frequent newsletters. At this time of year, it is essential to fill all of our discard spots at the July 4th festival, or else the compostables and recyclables become unacceptably contaminated.
Help out for a total of six hours over the five-day donation intake period, June 28-July 2, and you become eligible to purchase early when the departments have pre-sale. We especially need Recycling Rovers in the afternoon (12-6) and evening (6-8) hours. Please sign up here.
