Huge thanks to the many of you who dutifully bag and bundle your newspapers, plastic bottles, magazines, aluminum cans, catalogs, metal, etc. for the ECC “drain the landfills, fill coffers” project.
We have great news to report this week! We received our largest single recycling amount yet, with a total of $404.88 in one big exchange of metal!
As of 3/6/21 we have collected $550.48 which put us at 55% of our 2021 goal! I think we need to raise our original goal of $1,000!
Please continue to save your recyclables. Please contact the church office if you would like to schedule a pick-up for recycled items. Click on the link above or call: (602) 266-4602.
A note on how you bundle and bag: you no longer need to place your newspapers in paper bags – plastic grocery bags are fine if that is easier. Also, I save (depending on its condition) every tall kitchen or garbage bag that you send your cans and bottles in. If you would like to reuse any of these bags, please let me know and I would be thrilled to get them to you. Again, many thanks for your efforts, you are friends of the Earth and your church.
We raised just under $500.00 in 2020.
