As part of America Recycles Week, November 12 18, 2006, St. Marys County is joining thousands of other recyclers across the country in celebrating America Recycles Day on November 14, 2006 by pledging to recycle and buy recycled products.
Through this event, St. Marys county is helping to raise the consumer awareness of completing the recycling loop through the purchase of products and packaging made from recycled-content materials. St. Marys County residents can also support America Recycles Day by simply pledging to step up their own effort to recycle and buy recycled. By making a pledge, you will become eligible to win an Alaskan cruise or one of five recycled aluminum TREK bicycles. Pledge cards are available at any of the six (6) Convenience centers. The national random drawing will be held on about December 15, 2006, entries must be postmarked by November 15, 2006. Residents can make their pledges via the Internet at http://www.americarecyclesday.org.

The mulch is located at the St. Andrews Landfill, Monday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please bring a shovel, pitchfork or similar hand tool to load the mulch and a tarp to cover the load, if necessary.
