Try cleaning up the toxic waste at your church.
Last Sunday's workbee in Lincoln City revealed we have a collection of pesticides, solvents, paints, and cleaning agents that goes back 50-years. Not only is this stuff a fire hazard, but some of it is genuinely bad news for the environment -- bad enough that we can't just throw it away.
The good news: with Earth Day coming up, our local recycling center is waiving its usual fees for disposing of some products.
So here's my advice:
- Check out your church's closets.
- Make a list of the toxic treasures you find.
- Then call your local landfill or sanitary district, and ask how you can safely get rid of these things for Earth Day.
