Expanded Recycling Event Set

by Syd Dursse, Chairman


On August 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Fassett Auditorium, the Recycling Committee will hold a collection of residents’ unwanted, unused, used, old, and new items to donate to The Scrap Exchange, Durham Rescue Mission, Triangle Ecycling, and the Animal Protection Society. For the first time, we will collect newspapers, which will be used in cages at Our Wild Neighbors (“OWN”). OWN is a wild-animal treatment and rehabilitation organization in Orange County.

If you need assistance, someone will be available for help with the delivery from your residence to the auditorium. Please contact Ed Wray to schedule a pick-up from your home on the 9th or 10th. Call Ed at x2812 or email him at edwinwra[email protected]
