E-Waste Drop Off on Friday and Plastic Recycling Information

From 11:00 AM onwards on this Friday a table will be set up near the security gate to drop off E-Waste. Thank you.

ELECTRONIC E-WASTE: In collaboration with a local school, the ACS Green Team is collecting electronic E-waste for proper disposal. E-waste is anything that plugs into a wall; it includes wires, electronic devices, televisions, and cameras, but it does NOT include batteries. (Batteries can be disposed of at Spinney’s in a battery collection box.) Items can be brought to the FIFA Roadshow or PICNIC IN THE PARK on Friday, November 17th, where we will have a collection table set-up. The pick-up of all of the E-waste is scheduled for November 18th. E-waste is highly toxic, so please help us keep these items out of our landfills.
NO PLASTIC RECYCLING DROP-OFF AT ACS
The municipality is becoming more attentive to the amount of waste produced by all of us. More regulations demand that we end the collection of plastic for recycling. The big blue bins will be removed. You can drop plastic at Spinney’s. We hope you will recycle despite the inconvenience. We will continue the paper recycling that the Green Team overseas.
