Recycling on your Doorstep
Posted: 06/07/2011 10:07:24 AM
Have you ever noticed the wire bin for aluminum cans - marked Amelia's Animal Fund - at the back of the Woodbrook Exxon Station? Obviously, many of our families now have, since as of the beginning of February, 2012, recycling the aluminum cans has brought in $454 for the animal shelter. A big thank you from Amelia and her family to all in the RRLR area!
Amelia continues to collect cans from her neighbors and friends for this cause. Amelia is the daughter of the Exxon Station's owner, Steve Merrill, and a big animal lover. She came up with this idea when she was thinking about a Girl Scout project about four years ago when she and her dad bundled up cans and took them to a local recycling center. The funds received from recycling go to a shelter in Harford County, Luna's House (www.lunashouse.org), or her dad might use the funds to buy animal food to take to the local shelter. So, why not bag up your cans and drop them off in the bin at the back of the Exxon Station (at the corner of Charles Street and Woodbrook Road) the next time you stop off for gas; Amelia and her furry friends would be very grateful!
Also at the gas station you will find more signs of Amelia's big heart and busy hands: a basket for used eye glasses inside. Instead of tossing them out, why not drop them in the basket, too.
