Morton Grove set to move recycling up a level

July 31, 2013 by  

Offering a solution to the problem of too many discarded items ending up in landfills, two upcoming Morton Grove events have been set up to make it easier for locals to recycle.

First up is the Craft Supply Swap, during which the public is asked to drop off items before the event. Articles requested include Christmas decorations, ribbon, yarn, needlework supplies, scrapbooking supplies, beads, and anything else that can be reused in a craft. On the day of the event the public will be free to pick up items, and organizers will be collecting non-perishable food to be donated to the Main and Niles Township food pantries.

This event will take place at The Homestead on August 10 beginning at 9:00 am. Admission is free, and donations can be dropped off at the venue on August 2-3 and 9.

Later in August, the Youth Services’ Rummage Sale will help to raise funds for the Youth Services of Glenview/Northbrook. The public is asked to donate such items as clothing, housewares, kitchen items, books, tools, bedding, and other small items. Youth Services helps to provide mental health services, character development programs and other necessary services to the youth of the area.

The sale is to be held at Youth Services of Glenview/Northbrook on August 17 from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. Items can be dropped off between August 8 and 10. For more information, call 847-724-2620.

Flyers have been created for both of these events, no doubt provided by Morton Grove printers.
