While many will be shopping “big-box” stores this upcoming Friday, November 28th (“Black Friday”), we encourage you to shop local and second-hand at our ReUse Center. Make it a weekend to celebrate, shop, and support the local businesses in our town.

In many public spaces nationally, such as parks, there typically aren’t enough options to effectively recycle. Studies have shown that if recycling receptacles aren’t present, the majority of people won’t hold on to their plastic water bottle until they get home to recycle it- which leads to unnecessary items being land filled.
Recycling in the parks is just like recycling at your own home- glass, metal, plastic bottles & tubs (#1, #2, #4-7) and paper can all go into the single-stream sorting bins. As a reminder, no food waste, Styrofoam, plastic bags or dog waste should go into recycling bins though.
