St. James Grounds Clean Up

Saturday, June 2nd, 8 am – Noon

Due to the weather our Spring Clean Up is later than it’s been but, we are hoping you still can come out and give us a hand.  We will need to clean up the brush and branches down by the pond.  If you have some time we could sure use your help!

Please help by bringing the following items to church and placing them in the large labeled box in the Main entrance way.

  • Oral Care Items: Used toothbrushes and the packaging of your new toothbrush, empty toothpaste tubes and the box for the new tube, empty floss containers.
  • Personal Care: Empty haircare, body wash, lotion bottles, tubes and containers including caps, lids and pumps (no aerosol) all makeup containers, tubes, pots, including lipstick, chapstick, mascara…

  • Cereal Bags: The waxy bags inside cereal boxes

Recycling requires a little effort on your part by sorting through things before they go out for trash collection, but your efforts not only help reduce landfill waste, but will help the School for the Deaf. Please help us. Questions: email: pschneider@wi.rr.com or call (414) 587-1202.
