Upcoming Collection Dates
Just before the May 13, 2023 county-wide collection, FBC’s Team Green will be doing an electronic waste collection. (The main collection event is usually crowded, so save your time, gasoline, and vehicle and let us take it for you!)
There are two options this time for collection:
- Drop off your items at the FBC garage on Saturday, May 6, 1:00–3:00 p.m. No need to sign up for this option, just show up and drop off your stuff.
- Have us pick up your items from your house on Monday morning, May 8. Please sign up by clicking the button below. You don’t have to be home at pick-up time. We can get your stuff from your porch, driveway, etc.
Please see below for the list of acceptable stuff, and gather it up!
How to sign up:
Please click the button below, or email the church office with your name, address, phone number, and list of items to be picked up.
ALSO: We need people to help load the truck on Friday, May 12 from 4:30–5:30 p.m. If you can help, please check the box on the collection signup form (if you’re also signing up for a home pickup), or contact Marylee Southard or the church office.
Some quick guidelines:
- No amount is too small! Gather up your old small appliances (lamps, recording gadgets, motorized toys, electric kitchen devices, printers, laptops, etc.) and if you have them, their cables and connectors!
- Attach your device’s cable or connector to it, if you have it.
- Remove all bulbs and batteries from your stuff if possible. (See the list below—they don’t want them.)
- Save your dead batteries and fluorescent bulbs—they go to the Household Hazardous Waste facility instead. And we can help you out with that, too! Get more info and keep an eye out for the next hazardous waste collection event HERE.
Here’s the OK list—Anything with a cord or battery, including, but not limited to:
- monitors (FLAT only, NO CRTS)
