Sell It, Shred It, Give It Away

A couple of opportunities are coming up over the next month to get rid of things you no longer want or need:

  • Howard County Greenfest (Saturday 4/13/13) - paper shredding, recycling of electronics/bikes/sewing machines/denim, charitable donations
  • Emerson Yard Sale (Saturday 5/4/13)


1. Howard County Greenfest 2013

Howard County will hold its 6th annual Greenfest in the Burrill Galleria and the Quad at Howard Community College on Sat., April 13th from 10 am - 4 pm.

Among the featured events and vendors:
  • Free shredding of up to 3 bags or boxes of paper (10 am - 2 pm)
  • Denim recycling (will be turned into insulation)
  • Bicycles, bicycle parts, and portable sewing machines collected by Bikes for the World
  • Electronics, eyeglasses, binoculars collected
  • Goodwill and Habitat for Humanity will be present

Unfortunately, this Earth Day event also conflicts with Emerson's Spring Clean-Up.
