Inside the door and to your right there is now a set of stylish boxes.
One contains a supply of reusable Tote All Recall shopping bags and one is for small Colgate-brand waste products, such as empty toothpaste tubes, dental floss containers, and toothbrushes.
Collection boxes for batteries and used razor blades are kept behind the service desk for safety reasons.
Local resident and Friends of the Farm member Rachel Kitchens took on the project of upgrading the collection boxes and providing new signage. “We hope these new boxes and signage will make it easier for locals to recycle these waste products” said Rachel.
