Weird Waste Day in Chestnut Hill this Saturday

Posted on: April 19, 2012

So many of us have basements or garages full of electronic equipment that we don’t know what to do with.  Good on you for not throwing it in the trash, and here’s your change to recycle it in a responsible way!  This Saturday, at the Norwood Academy campus parking lot, you can bring your old CPU’s, printers, cell phones, anything you wouldn’t want in a landfill, and Green in Chestnut Hill (GrinCH) will reuse, recycle or dismantle and dispose of in a sustainable way.

 

Green In Chestnut Hill: Weird Waste Day!!!.


Philly Spring Clean Up

Posted on: April 17, 2012

My partner, Bob Elfant, and two of our dedicated agents, Janice Smalley and Deb Stanitz, spent this past Saturday cleaning up the east and west blocks of Duval Street off of Germantown Avenue.  They volunteered with neighbors and the board of the Mt Airy Business Improvement District as part of the Philly Spring Clean Up event.

It was another event in our year-long Building Community initiative, bringing our total to almost $6000 contributed and over 350 service hours this year!
