Shred-a-Thon and Electronic Recycling – April 11, 2015

Did you miss our big event in November?….not to worry, you get another chance.

The Rotary Club of Carrollton-Farmers Branch will host a Drive-Up Shred-A-Thon fundraiser Saturday, April 11th from 10am-12noon in the Newman Smith High School front parking lot at 2335 N. Josey.

Avoid identity theft and paper jams by bringing old bills, tax returns, statements and personal documents to be professionally shredded. Staples and paper clips are okay.

Suggested donations for shredding are $10 for the first box and $5 for other boxes. Cash and credit cards accepted.

Proceeds support community service projects and grants of the CFB Rotary Club. For more information, visit www.cfbrotary5810.org.

ELECTRONIC RECYCLING

We filled up a half a ton truck the last time…..so there must be more out there. Did you upgrade your computers for Christmas and don’t know what to do with that old broken laptop, CPU, or monitor. If you have any tool, appliance, equipment that has a CORD, then we can recycle it. TVs are welcome!

There is no charge for this service brought to you by Keep Carrollton Beautiful! Save the landfills and donate to someone who can recycle it! For further information about the electronics recycle, email cathysphr@verizon.net

VOLUNTEERS are needed! Students, get your service club together and come help us unload cars and direct traffic. Contact Cathy at cathysphr@verizon.net for more information.

Adopt-A-Spot

Keep Carrollton Beautiful’s Adopt-A-Spot program provides local businesses, civic organizations and other groups the opportunity to make an impact on the cleanliness and appearance of our community. By accepting the responsibility and leadership of the adopted “spot”, the group is not only increasing awareness of litter issues and the impact of beautification efforts, but is also publicly demonstrating a positive behavior of local pride and ownership of Carrollton.

All across the country, similar litter reduction campaigns have been implemented and proven to be very successful. Some of the advantages gained are: reducing the cost of litter removal, advertising and team building, instilling community pride and awareness, beautifying, and allowing City maintenance crews to perform other needed tasks.

Adopt-A-Spot is a voluntary program to involve citizens in maintaining and beautifying Carrollton. Anyone may participate by volunteering to Adopt-A-Spot in Carrollton and pledging to maintain it for one year or longer. Any “spot” (with the exception of medians) within the city limits not currently maintained, may be adopted, with special attention to those places that appear neglected.

Follow these steps to Adopt-Your-Spot:

Select a spot appropriate to the capabilities and size of your group, either we can provide a location or where you see the greatest need or close to your physical location.
Maintain your “spot” for a minimum commitment of one year; cleaning it at least once a quarter with one cleanup date falling on the Great American Cleanup of that year
Submit periodic photos of your group with your sign to reflect your group maintaining the “spot”.

Email boardlist@kcbadmin.org with your contact information and desired location.

We look forward to joining with you to make Carrollton litter free.
