The program is designed to increase awareness in recycling by creating an alternative means of reusing items that would otherwise end up in the landfill.

A list of all participants shall be posted at City Hall, grocery stores, gas stations, etc. Residents are being asked to place reusable/serviceable items in front of their homes no earlier than 8:00 a.m. on June 14, 2008 so people are encouraged to stop and peruse the items.
