Fall 2021 Beyond the Cart Events

We’ll see you at one of our upcoming community reuse & recycling events, Beyond the Cart, taking place this fall.

We’ve all spent a lot of time at home these days. With that, you may have noticed that you have items you no longer need and are also hard to know what to do with. Appliances, household goods, Styrofoam, batteries, paper for shredding, and electronics are all great examples of items that are perfect to drop off for free at Beyond the Cart. Items in good condition will be donated for reuse if possible while others will be recycled.
