Leslie Harris here, and I was recycling before recycling was cool.
When I lived in the city in the ’80s, I would regularly take large trash bags filled with cans, bottles, and paper grocery bags filled with newspapers to my local 7-Eleven parking lot, where they had empty trailers. I had to sort everything, including the blue glass from the green glass from the brown glass from the clear glass.
Curbside recycling is so easy, but one thing we still can’t recycle is styrofoam. So I was glad to read that Oswego is having a styrofoam recycling event this weekend.
The Presbyterian Church in Oswego has an Earth Care Team, and they will be having a styrofoam and polystyrene foam recycling event tomorrow, July 22nd, from 9:00 a.m. until noon.
You can bring any foam materials that have the ps6 symbol. If you have food containers or cups, please be sure that they are rinsed and tied up in a plastic bag. You can also bring foam peanuts and bubble wrap, but please have everything, including packaging foam, in separate bags.
They will not accept padded envelopes, other packaging material or foam insulation.
The event runs from 9:00 a.m. until noon in the church parking lot at 1976 IL-25. More information is HERE
