to celebrate our 10th anniversary!  Please join us in celebrating rain

Northampton.  We will have live music, games, tabling from other
sustainable businesses and more!  Meet your Pedal Person, see how the
trailers work and learn more about recycling effectively and reducing
trash.  This event is completely free of charge and open to the

** REUSE RALLY AT SMITH VOCATIONAL SCHOOL SEPT. 15TH **

The Northampton Department of Public Works is sponsoring a reuse event
on Saturday September 15 from 9 am to 12 pm for Northampton residents
and small businesses, in cooperation with the City’s ReUse Committee,
the Salvation Army and Bikes Not Bombs.  This "Reuse and Recycling
Rally" will be held on the Smith Vocational school campus, rain or
shine.  One of the goals of the ReUse Committee is to reduce disposal
costs for residents and to divert reusable materials from the landfill
as much as possible.  

This event will feature "Take It or Leave It" bulky rigid plastic
collection, collection of textiles, clothing and household goods, and
a reuse rally for old bicycles.  All types and sizes of bikes and
parts will be accepted for reuse, unless they are very rusty.  Bikes
Not Bombs also will accept wheelchairs and plastic containers for
sorting parts & shipping overseas like milk crates, kitty litter
containers and 5-gallon buckets.  To view Bikes Not Bombs full wish
list, go to http://bikesnotbombs.org/donate.  Bikes Not Bombs requests
a $10 per bike donation to defray storage, processing and shipping
costs, and can provide a signed, dated receipt for the value of each
donated bicycle for tax purposes.  

For further information, see contact Karen Bouquillon at the
Department of Public Works at 587-1059 or kbouquillon@nohodpw.org or
