Ridge Meadows Recycling's January, 2016 newsletter - Enjoy!
View this email in your browser

Wow! 2016 has had a very exciting start! Not only are we a finalist in the Non-Profit category for the Chamber of Commerce's Business Excellence Awards, but this year we will be selling bear-resistant rolling organics totes through a $50 subsidy provided by the City of Maple Ridge!

The totes, which retail at $200, will only cost $150 for Maple Ridge residents and will be sold with our annual sales of composters, solar cones, and rain barrels - stay tuned!

Celebrate Earth Day is scheduled for Saturday, April 23 from 10am - 2pm in Memorial Peace Park & the Greg Moore Youth Centre with an ENERGY! theme you won't want to miss. 

Since it's a new year, our newsletters are also taking on a new format - let us know what you think :)

Enjoy the rest of January & have a fabulous 2016!
