Spring Recycling Update

As the cool air begins to turn warmer, the days stay light longer and the trees and flowers begin to bloom; we welcome the Spring season. We hope that all of you had an enjoyable holiday time and new years. We now look forward to a beautiful Alabama spring (hopefully). 

Due to our family Spring Break plans, as well as the community yard sale that is taking place on Saturday, March 20th, we have decided to postpone recycling pickup until March 27th. Below is a list of dates for spring recycling pickup. Please make note of the schedule changes so that you may participate in neighborhood recycling this spring. 

With the coming of spring we are also reminded of the beauty of our earth and are hopefully re-energized to continue in our efforts to take care of our planet. Thank you to all who have faithfully participated in recycling in Grand Ridge Forest, we greatly appreciate your contribution. April 22nd is Earth Day. If we become aware of any community events for earth day, we will post them on the blog.

Happy Holidays

It's been quite some time since our last post. Despite the best of intentions, Fall 2009 has flown by. We've welcomed a new member to our household - Miles Richard Holden, born November 24. He's healthy, has a full head of hair (still has not fallen out after 4 weeks), and has an expanding lung and vocal capacity with each day that passes.

With 2010 just around the corner we want express our gratitude to all of you who have continuously participated and helped with the neighborhood recycling program since its inception in Spring 2009. I don't have any way to measure the quantity of materials that have been transported to the Wetumpka Recycling Center, but each of our bi-weekly Saturday collections fills the back of my truck with paper, cardboard, plastic, cans, and newspapers.

As a reminder, this Saturday, December 26, there will be no pick up because of the holidays and the fact that the Wetumpka Recycling Center is closed. However, we will resume our regular bi-weekly pick up service on January 9, 2010. I hope that the New Year will bring increased opportunities for recycling and continued growth in community involvement in Grand Ridge Forest.

If you have yet to get in the habit of separating your recyclable items from your normal trash for the bi-weekly pickup please consider making a new effort in 2010. There's nothing like a New Year's resolution that has no cost and benefits so many.

Happy Holidays,

DJ, Mara, Eli and Miles
