A Message from your Fire Department
Happy New Year!
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank to everyone who supported our 1st Stuff the Squad event. We appreciate your generosity, whether you dropped off food donations, a toy or both. The food donations were sent to our local food bank and the toys were sent to the Toys for Tots program through the Marine Corps. Many people benefited from your generosity. We also would like to send a big Thank You to Discount Drug Mart for allowing us to use their location for the project. Look for more information on our next event coming up this summer.

What Do I Do With?... Shredded Paper
Shredded paper should not be placed in your curbside recycling. The pieces are too small to be sorted properly at the recycling facility and will end up in the trash. Instead, ensure they are recycled by placing them in paper bags and recycling at a Paper Retriever or River Valley drop off bin. Learn more.
