If you've been wondering what to do with all that junk mail or empty plastic water bottles and would like to do your part in this year's Earth Day campaign to End Plastic Pollution, drop them and your other recyclables off this Saturday, May 19th at the Habitat For Humanity of Lapeer County ReStore from 9 AM to 1 PM. The drop off center is located at the ReStore parking lot on the first and third Saturdays of each month. Normally it's a $3 per car or pick-up truck fee but this Saturday (5/19) $1 will be charged for recycling drop off with the exception of Hadley, Mayfield and Metamora Township residents with proof of residence.
