Letter: Recycle lights for a good cause
Just a tip: While the Rowan County recycling sites cannot accept strands of unwanted or burned out Christmas tree lights, you can drop them in the Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary aluminum can drop-off spots around Salisbury. Faithful Friends can recycle them.
The dropoff sites at Uptown Dogs and Cats Grooming on Statesville Boulevard (beside West End Plaza/former Salisbury Mall) and on Brenner Avenue at the Hudson-Miller-Tatum VFW Post are accessible 24/7. The complete list of all drop-off spots and addresses is available on this website: http://faithfulfriendsnc.org/can-team.
The lights need to be bagged separately from aluminum cans left in the “Can kennels.” The lights will be kept out of our landfills and used for a good cause. Every bit helps and is appreciated!
Thank you to all who save and donate aluminum cans for Faithful Friends. Your help every week provides money for the animals we shelter.
