Eco Tip: September Reminders

Marsha Lowe, Weavers Way Environment Committee

Don’t Trash Those Electronics: Bring all your broken, out-of-date, unloved and unwanted electronics to Weavers Way Environment Committee and GRinCH’s electronics recycling event on Saturday, Sept. 24, 9 a.m. to noon, at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy, 8891 Germantown Ave. Our recycler, eForce, will handle your discards responsibly and locally, and we’ll raise money for worthy community grants. See the flyer for more info.

Brita+TerraCycle — Perfect Together: If you use Brita filters and pitchers, good news: You can take any Brita product, whether metal or plastic, to the TerraCycle collection boxes in Weavers Way Next Door in Chestnut Hill or Weavers Way Across the Way in Mt. Airy. This is the one exception to TerraCycle’s “no metal” rule. All other containers and products must be plastic. More information on the TerraCycle program can be found in the July Shuttle Eco Tip.
