This year for Earth Day why not try to make one change in your lifestyle that will help give us all a healthier and cleaner planet. The Solid Waste Department at the City of Presque Isle supplies residents with blue recycle bags that can be put out curbside for your refuse hauler to take during regular trash pickups. You can also visit the Presque Isle Recycling Center at 655 Missile Street (764-9393). We will have bags and brochures from the Solid Waste Department to distribute at the library. If you have any questions regarding local recycling, contact the Solid Waste Department at 12 Second Street (764-2507).
One simple way to reduce trash is to take your own bags when grocery shopping. See the link for "Bring you own bag when you shop" below.
