SRC members and families have stepped up the donations of deposit bottles and cans this summer. According to our partners in the CLYNK recycling program, we now have dropped off nearly 3,000 containers for redemption.
With the final summer weekend nearly upon us, we anticipate a lot more beverages being consumed and a lot more empties being created.
Here’s a look at the impact in the few months we’ve been involved:
If you haven’t yet become involved in the CLYNK recycling program through SRC, it never is too late. Here’s how it works:
(1.) Get the official CLYNK plastic bags (no others will be accepted) and bar code stickers from Bill Dowd.
(2.) Toss your empty deposit bottles and cans in the bag. No need to sort them!
(3.) Go to any Hannaford supermarket’s container redemption section, scan the bar code sticker, and drop the bag in the marked receiving area.
That’s it. Your empties will be collected from the store, trucked to the CLYNK recycling facility in Maine, and SRC will be credited within 48 hours for the amount of the deposit redemption. It couldn’t get much easier.
