Let’s talk recycling and good deals at the Pottawattamie County Recycling Center! So Saturday, July 11 from 9 to noon, the Pott. Co. Recycling Center will be having an open house that includes free shredding for you!
Yes, that’s right – FREE shredding! Plus, you can drop off any other things you’ve been saying you were going to get rid of for the last 16 months!
If you have tires, car seats, tube TVs, or anything like that, there is a minimal fee to recycle but it will be out of your life forever!
If you have electronics that still work, doors and windows that are still usable, golf clubs, bikes, furniture or whatever that is still in good shape, they will take it for the Swap Shop, as it is called, for FREE! If you haven’t been there, it’s like the Habitat for Humanity’s Re-Store. It’s a 4-Her’s project paradise, a rental owner’s dream, a poor college student’s haven, or a picker/garage saler’s good time! It’s definitely worth checking out!
They are also asking that if you have any children’s or adolescent books in good shape, you bring those, too! The group Raise Me to Read is a nonprofit that encourages literacy in Pottawattamie County will then get those books into the hands of children in our county!
This event was organized by Susan Miller of Carson and is sponsored by Great Western Bank (Oakland), Hometown Insurance (Oakland), Amy’s Attic (Carson), Guyer Concrete & Wall Systems (Avoca), The Finish Line Car Wash (Carson), and the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation.
