Recycling center offers free LED light bulbs

first_imgAurora, In. — The Dearborn County Recycling Center is conducting a lightbulb exchange through the month of November. Dearborn County residents can bring up to two old bulbs each and receive new LED replacements. This program is taking place in the Recycling Center Drive-Thru, Monday through Friday 9am to 4pm and Wednesday 9am to 6pm. The project is a celebration of America Recycles Day, which is November 15th. More information is available online here.This program is being partially funded by the Southeastern Indiana REMC Operation RoundUp Grant Program. The Recycling Center received $1,000 from the program, which gave $73,683.95 to 37 recipients from 7 counties.  Southeastern Indiana REMC explains the program by saying, “The grant money is made possible through the generosity of the REMC membership by “rounding up” their monthly electric bill to the nearest dollar amount.” This is the second disbursement of the funds. Another is scheduled for January 2018. Applications will be accepted in December 2017 for that cycle and can be found online here.The Dearborn County Solid Waste Management is a subunit of the Dearborn County government. It operates the Dearborn County Recycling Center in Aurora, which provides recycling and special disposal services to residents. The public utilizes 13 drop-off locations for recycling of household items and the Drive-Thru for problematic wastes, such as tires, electronics and motor oil. The District also collects Household Hazardous Wastes and runs a non-profit reuse center for education and charitable causes. Educational services are provided at no additional cost to anyone interested.last_img read more


first_imgSanta pictured in Annagry earlierBREAKING NEWS EXCLUSIVE: By CHRIS MASSEY FERGUSON: SANTA has arrived in Co Donegal in the last few minutes, according to eye-witnesses.The Irish Coast Guard has also just confirmed the first signal from a special GPS system fitted inside the nose of a reindeer called Rudolf.“I couldn’t believe he’d be here in Annagry first,” said local man John Paul McFadden, who was standing outside Sharkey’s Bar when he saw Santa slow up and said ‘hello ho ho’. “I waved and shouted to him and he said he was doing his Donegal rounds first and was doing it in alphabetical order this year after complaints made to Donegal County Council so he’s starting in Annagry in the next hour before heading to Burtonport, then Carndonagh and Creeslough.“He’s no slow coach, that’s for sure. I asked him if he’d pose for a selfie but he said he didn’t want to be late.”The unusual zig-zag tour of Donegal was confirmed by retired councillor David Alcorn.Mr David Alcorn pictured a short time ago“We never get nothing in Burtonport so I raised it with Santa’s people at the North Pole that we should be first this year and they came up with this system and it works for us because that means he’ll be here soon,” said Mr Alcorn, pictured left a short time ago. John McMistletoe, a spokesman for the Irish Coast Guard, said: “We reckon he’ll be around Donegal in no time at all so we’d advise children to be heading to bed shortly.“He’ll hold off though on houses were children are at Mass or church services this evening.”Mr McMistletoe added: “It’s all very exciting. I hope I get a new iPhone because this one I’m speaking to you on now is about to….”Meanwhile Mr McFadden will be in Sharkey’s Bar later on if anyone wants to chat to him about what he saw. BREAKING NEWS: SANTA SPOTTED IN SKIES ABOVE ANNAGRY was last modified: December 24th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AnnagryCarndonaghdonegalSANTAsleighlast_img read more
