Saturday is Earth Day, and once again there will be a community clean-up event, the Earth Day Festival and the college’s Big Event volunteer effort.
Whether you are able to participate in Saturday’s activities or not, remember there is more than one way help reduce your impact on the planet. The “reduce, reuse and recycle” movement has grown in popularity and helps keep waste out of landfills.
Whether you are reusing old t-shirts to make shopping totes, crafting bird feeders from cans, growing greenery in old mason jars or decorating your home with old doors, every reduce, reuse and recycle effort makes an impact.
And if you just can’t find a way to use that old item in your home anymore, remember that someone else may find a creative way to reinvent it – and will even pay you for it. So sign up for The Chadron Record’s annual Community-wide Garage Sale, co-sponsored by the Solid Waste Agency of Northwest Nebraska. Earn some extra cash for the summer, clean out your basement, attic and garage all while keeping items out of the SWANN landfill.
The two-day event is scheduled for May 5-6 and Saturday’s Earth Day is the perfect time to start culling out those items for your very own garage sale.
A map pinpointing all of the garage sale locations will be published in The Chadron Record May 3, but the deadline is nearing to reserve your spot on the map so call today.
This year, we’re also offering expanded coverage for our garage sale advertisers. For just $20, the map and classifieds will reach more than 45,000 readers through our pages, as well as online publication and appearances in our sister papers, the Hot Springs Star and the Compass. Deadline to place an ad for your garage sale is April 27 at noon.
Don’t live in Chadron? Don’t let that stop you from having a garage sale of your own. Interested sellers can rent spaces in The Chadron Record parking lot for $12 each per day (bring your own tables).
