Ongoing activities for the environment
Contact Elaine Bynum 630-278-9722 to recycle Styrofoam from packages and take-out food containers since we learned they are not wanted in our street recycle program. Elaine will take it to DART in North Aurora.
JoAnn is continuing to collect the plastic bread closures that are too small to go into regular recycle bins but Scarce is thrilled to receive in bulk.
Kay McKeen from SCARCE would be so proud of us. She taught us how to find a place for just about everything that would go to the landfill without just a little effort from us.
