“It Ain’t Easy Being Green”…   But we try to make it easier for you!250x250_7

Since our Congregation began recycling e-waste with Planet Green, we have received $420.77, and Treasurer g.g. gordon just sent in another full box of used ink cartridges, cell phones, cords, and cameras.

This program benefits both the environment and the Congregation!  Thanks to all of you who have kept the recycling boxes full! (Click the pic for more info!)

Please keep bringing in your no longer needed small electronic items and computer ink cartridges, and we will continue to work for planet health and put some extra cash in the Congregation’s pockets as well.

The recycling boxes have been moved from the vestibule to the kitchen, so please place your items in the boxes there.

Thank You!


Help out the planet and the congregation by letting us recycle these items for you:

Inkjet Cartridges                          Cell Phones/Pagers & Accessories
