Cleaning Up, Clearing Out

Christmas Tree still up?  As many are cleaning up from the holidays or will be, here's more information for disposing of your tree.  If you'd prefer to recycle your tree into your own yard, try adding it in your compost pile or starting a new one.  Resources like "how to compost" by Columbia Springs can help you get started or maybe you'll learn something new for your existing pile.

Speaking of recycling, are you making a resolution to recycle more in the new year or just to make the most of the yucky weather by getting an early jump on the spring cleaning?  There is a free collection event on Saturday, January 4th.  Get rid of block foam or electronics, click here for more about the event. 

Looking to get rid of something else?  Try the Recycling A-Z page. "The Clark County Green Neighbors program is a new and exciting way for you to learn about green events in your area and discover how you can live a more sustainable life." -Clark County Environmental Services
