To the community:
Thanks so much for all your diverse efforts to reduce waste in our community!
In case you have any of those corrugated plastic election signs passing through your hands in the next week, we just wanted to remind you that we recommend reusing them if possible, and recycling them otherwise. Here are some options:
1. Return signs to candidates/campaign organizers for reuse in future elections.
2. Reuse signs for your own purposes or donate them. There are a lot of sites on the web with ideas on this, from making garage sale and party signs with them, to constructing all sorts of entertaining items. We’ve listed crafts and designs we thought were fun – including bike panniers and a dollhouse – on www.moabrecycles.org. In addition, high school teacher Mary Walker-Irvin is looking for 10 to 20 corrugated plastic election signs for her physical science students to use as building materials (email her at: Walker-IrvinM@grandschools.org).
3. Recycle your signs (they can go in the plastics No. 3-No. 7 bin at the recycling center located at 1000 Sand Flats Road).
Thanks again, and have a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July!
