Can & Bottle Drives

Can & Bottle Drive July 14 2012 #4Every Quarter (January, April, July and October) you can find Jerry and the Big Tex at the Church Parking lot, usually from 8:30 am until 12 noon to collect your plastic, aluminum and bottle CT returnables.

Thanks to Green Planet Redemption Center in Bristol, we have a great system setup and this fundraiser has a great ROI because there are no out-of-pocket expenses.  We receive $.04 for every return, Green Planet gets $.01 to process the mountain of returnables we bring in each time.

On special times, we will have a Clothing Drive that pays by the pound for acceptable donations.  All you have to do is clear out the closets and drawers, bag them in a semi-durable bag and drop it off on days where we collect.  Here is a flyer of items you can donate.

You will be notified in Church, through Newsletter articles, in our News Blog, by signage around town and in the Upcoming Events section found on several pages of our website.

We have been doing this for nearly 5 years and it’s a great cause because we clean up the environment through recycling and we help all the Church missions listed on the Fundraising Homepage!

Thank you to all who come and volunteer their time to sort and bag the returns, to the organizations who support us such as the Cub Scouts Pack 23 and the Burlington Little League.

Enjoy your beverages even more knowing all the good you can do by visiting us during our Can & Bottle Drive Saturdays!!
