Don’t forget – Bring your old electronic equipment to be recycled tonight or tomorrow!
I’ll be at the Happy Hour this afternoon (September 15) from 5:00 – 6:30 and will also collect on September 16th at Circle Lake Park from 4 – 5 PM. If neither of those dates or times work, let me know and I’ll find a time to pick it up at your house. Please note: I have a small pickup truck and will only be able to collect desktop or small computer equipment.
I’ll be taking the recycle equipment to eCycle on Monday afternoon.
Please read the FAQ’s on items they will and won’t take:

Thanks for the outpouring of concern for our ailing foxes. If you have seen a fox in the last couple of weeks, text Mary Cartwright at (865)406-4111. Fox Force has volunteers, we have meds, but our fox population appears to have pretty much disappeared. We need help locating any remaining foxes. Please text the location of your fox and we’ll do our best to save it!
Our neighborhood foxes need your help. They are dying of the mange, and it’s a horrible painful death. If you have foxes in your yard or know where some are, you’re eligible for the neighborhood Fox Force. We’re a handful of concerned neighbors who want to ensure we have healthy foxes with frolicking kits next spring.
The treatment is straightforward. You put a small piece of food (meatball, boiled egg, wad of pet food, whatever seems foxworthy) out for your fox daily. After, your fox is taking the bait; you inject a bait ball with liquid Invermectin (we provide a loaded syringe). Keep baiting for a week, and then dose another bait ball. Repeat. So you’ll need to commit to about a month of fox baiting, that’s it.
If you have an ailing fox and are willing to save it, text Mary Cartwright at (865) 406-4111.
