Going Green Committee news

Treva Christenson

Everyone come join us on March 17, St. Patrick’s Day, for our fourth shredding day. We will hold the event in the Waterview parking lot from 9:00-11:00 a.m. We ask that you save your documents in boxes the size of banker’s boxes (legal or letter size). These boxes are easy to handle, and you can take them home and reuse them.

Each month Phoenix Fibers, located in Chandler, converts over 300 tons of denim and other cotton fabric into “shoddy fiber” which is then manufactured into many different products. Items collected include unusable towels, sheets, clothing, shoes, etc. Recycling these items not only helps the environment by reducing the amount of old stuff going into the landfills, it also helps us raise money for SunBird. We receive $.10 per pound for the donated fibers.

Come join us on the Go Green Committee. We are looking for new members and ideas. Come join us February 2 at 2:00 p.m. at the east end of the Ballroom.

The recycling bin is located in the Waterview parking lot.
