Becoming environmentally aware and responsible is no longer an option, it is a necessity.  Between 60 and 75 cent of all household synthetic waste can be usefully recycled, resulting in the preservation of natural resources and protection of the environment.

We hope everyone will take advantage of the recycling center.  If we want to save our community from an environmental catastrophe, we must all act now and together.

If you have questions about recycling, please contact Justin Few at:  ljfew@sbcglobal.net
