Spring Time Means Spring Cleaning and Recycling your Items

Spring Time Means Spring Cleaning and Recycling your Items

Hi again everyone,

We all know that over so many years damage has been done to this plant we live on. There are many things we can all do to protect and clean up the land around us. One such way is to recycle whatever you can in your own home everyday. Here in the town of Gouldsboro it is very easy to do. Every week for free there is a curb side pick up for all you recyclables. This is a program offered by the town in an effort to cut back on trash and waste in the town. The items that are picked up from the pick up are taken to the recycle center in Hancock. Coastal Recycling Corporation is a non-profit organization that provides a much needed service for the area. They accept cardboard, newspaper, plastics, glass, steel cans, aluminum, and scrap metal. These are all items that you can leave curb side for pick up Wednesday mornings.
