Counting Down the Days Until Skokie's Spring Greening: April 6, 2014

I'm reading: Counting Down the Days Until Skokie's Spring Greening: April 6, 2014Tweet this!

Skokie's Spring Greening is one of those things I heard about through a well-timed Facebook update. DH and stopped over with a few of our difficult-to-recycle items and bid them adieu in the most environmentally-friendly way possible. This green event provides area residents with a chance to safely dispose of  tires, batteries, electronic waste, and more. We been piling up those items since last May ready for this year's event on April 6. Alas, I just read they won't take old paint, so now I need to figure out what to do with that...

The Spring Greening also features a Green Fair highlighting civic groups, a high school "trashy fashion show" and local utilities. As I recall we also picked up a few seedlings for our garden from The Talking Farm, though it's hard to imagine a garden growing any time soon--and I'm not sure how we're going to keep our veggie-loving dog out of it when we do.

Whether you've got old batteries in the basement or an old prom dress in the back closet, there's no better place to recycle them than Skokie's Spring Greening.

The Spring Greening will take place on Sunday, April 6, 2104 from 10 - 2 at Niles North High School in Skokie.

Mattresses? Disassembled computers and tech that I need to smuggle out under cover of darkness?

What a great way to purge and de-clutter!
