Help us by Recycling

We are collecting aluminum cans for the youth ministry. A can has been placed in the hallway beside the back entry door.

You may leave your empty printer ink cartridges for recycle on the counter in the church office.

Recycle your eyeglasses, hearing aids & cell phones. This is an ongoing project for the Duncan Falls Lion’s Club, and a box has been placed in the hallway next to the parlor for your use.

The Ronald McDonald House pays its electric bill with money raised through recycling of pull tabs from aluminum cans. Please save your tabs and bring them into church and place in the bin in the hallway next to the parlor or give to Sandy Holbein.
