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 raised a total of $1,299.41 so far this year. We raised just under $500.00 in 2020. Thank you Cindy for all your good work!
In August we collected $55 in metal. Thank you so much for saving these items, as well as newspapers, magazines, and catalogs. We are taking care of our church and our earth.
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. You may also bring your recyclables to church with you Sunday morning.
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.
