The Recycling Coalition continues its efforts to keep material from the Manila landfill. We do this by encouraging volunteer recycling in the Manila area. Dutch John is welcome to join us, but a coordinator for that area is needed to initiate the collection and sorting of materials.
We are extremely grateful to James and Barbara Briggs for the donation of their barn as a sorting and storage site for the donated materials!! If it weren’t for this facility we wouldn’t have a recycling program. We are also grateful to the community for their positive response in the past year! The bins are continuing to fill up at least once per week and sometimes more often.
We are still looking for a few more people to help with the sorting and construction of bins. We meet on the first or second Monday of each month at 6 pm at the Courthouse and then go to the barn to sort the materials. New volunteers are welcome and encouraged!!
Recyclable materials that we collect include: corrugated cardboard, card stock, newsprint, magazines, phone books, paper (not neon colors), aluminum, plastic bags/wrap, tin cans (that are cleaned out), packing foam and Styrofoam, glass, household batteries and #1 and #2 Plastic bottles and containers. Sorting bags into like products is helpful but not required. Milk jugs should be rinsed out and the caps left off.
