SOCRRA E-News Update | January 2017

An old computer, books, coffee mugs and other unwanted items often find their way to the basement for storage after the holidays. SOCRRA has suggestions for reusing and recycling old stuff in the new year.

  • Donate your gently-used items to a thrift store or charity.

  • Bring electronics, batteries even hard cover books to SOCRRA’s Hazardous Waste Drop off site during normal business hours. Available only for residents of our 12 SOCRRA communities.

  • Old coffee mugs can find a new home in your office breakroom for coworkers to reuse.

  • Host a FreeCycle at your office or school in 3 easy steps:

    • Invite co-workers to bring in usable items to work in a designated area for the FreeCycle.

    • Promote space as one-day event or permanent breakroom feature

    • Attendees are encouraged to take as many items as they choose.
