The Holiday Season is upon us…….This is the time when we create more, throw away more material than any other time of the year! That doesn’t mean we have to throw it all away. You can start your New Year Resolution, this Holiday Season, by utilizing the City of Mason Recycling Center at 510 N. Ave. F. You can recycle gift boxes, wrapping paper, cards, junk mail, magazines, catalogs, plastic, glass, steel, aluminum and more!Americans throw away 25% more trash during the holiday season than any other time of year!! This extra garbage amounts to 25 million tons of trash!So this holiday season, utilize the resources we have available to our community and Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! Make Recycling part of your New Year Resolution!If you use the recycle trailers that are positioned at various places in town, please only leave your recyclables and not household garbage. By helping us sort the recyclables it saves time, labor and also your tax dollars. If the trailers are not at their locations, please visit our recycle center at 510 N. Ave. F. We are only two minutes away from any recycle trailer and you will be greeted with a smile.The City of Mason Recycle Center hours of operation are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday. We will be closed for the holidays on Friday, December 23, Monday, December 25 and January 2, 2012.Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!
