Fall Recycling Event
Thu, Oct 24 - Sun, Oct 27
In an effort to improve our synagogue’s ecological footprint and encourage a “green” state-of-mind among our community, AA’s Greening Group collects hard-to-recycle materials and delivers them to CHaRM (Center for Hard to Recycle Materials) for proper recycling and disposal. These items CAN be responsibly recycled, re-purposed, and reused. Recycling can help prevent air and ground water pollution and keep the islands of the Pacific Ocean free of plastic. So, think before you toss, and bring your tricky recyclables (NOT trash/landfill) to AA where the Greening Group will take the items to CHaRM (Center for Hard to Recycle Materials) for proper recycling and disposal.
What can I bring?
- Paint, Styrofoam, packing peanuts (in bags please!), pesticides, herbicides, etc.
- Electronics: TV’s, computer monitors, small appliances, printer cartridges, electric cords, etc. ($15 per TV or computer monitor)
- Bulbs, batteries, sheet plastic, scrap metal (including fluorescent tubes up to 8 feet), car and rechargeable batteries, bubble plastic, etc. (50 cents per fluorescent tube)
Where do I bring it?
Look for the blue bins in the parking lot, on the west side. Please deposit smaller items in the bins or bag or box them. Stack larger items nearby.
Help support this effort by leaving a $5 donation in the collection envelopes in the AA and Ahava lobbies.
