A huge shout-out to our 41 active volunteers! Since February 2021, this group has volunteered approximately 3,780 hours of their time at our recycling center. As of today, Feb 20, we have sent 5 truckloads of cardboard to recycling centers in Minnesota and Washington. Each truckload carries 52 bales of cardboard and amounts to 102 tons of cardboard. That is about 510 cubic yards of space we have freed up in our landfill. GROW purchased a baler for plastics and since August, we have baled 13 #1 plastics and 2 #2 plastics. This amounts to about 1 ton of plastic and almost 10 cubic yards of plastic kept out of our landfill.
