Recycling in Mosquito/Swansboro!!

 Each month in the Mosquito Byte newsletter you see the request below:

WANTED!!!
ALL CA CRV ALUMINUM CANS, BEER BOTTLES AND PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES. Please drop off bags from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the Fire Station. Please consider this option when you organize your recycled materials. (Wine bottles don’t have CRV! We can’t use them)
NOTE: The “recycle rules” at our new buy back location have changed. Lids/Caps on plastic and glass CRV containers MUST BE REMOVED before they can be redeemed. If you have a chance and can remove the lids, it will sure help the recycle volunteers.
This is a very important fund raiser for the Mosquito Volunteer Fire Association and
MVFA THANKS YOU!



Today we want to give a shout out and THANK YOU to all who help us by donating your bottles and cans!! Here are a couple of pictures from last weekend. We love to see the young ones involved! What an awesome community that works together for the benefit of all!
