*This change will improve efficiency, reduce costs, use less fuel and reduce carbon emissions.
 “When in doubt throw it out” -it is better to throw out an item with your solid waste rather than risk contaminating the recyclables. ALMOST 30% IF RECYCLED ITEMS END UP IN LANDFILLS DUE TO CONTAMINATION. It is best to reduce, then reuse and finally recycle.
We would like to take this opportunity to personally thank our residents for anticipated cooperation with our new recycling program changes.

January is National Glaucoma Month
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually steal sight without warning. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world. The best way to protect your sight is to get regular comprehensive eye exams. For more information visit the Glaucoma Research Foundation at www.glaucoma.org
Hands Free CPR Training - January 21, 2020  7 - 8pm
Hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (hands-only CPR) is the recommended form of CPR for an adult or teen who collapses outside of a medical setting. It not only increases the likelihood of surviving breathing and cardiac emergencies that occur outside of medical settings, but it's simple to learn and easy to remember.
