Hi Ross. thanks for clearing that up.
When I click on the link, it goes to a page that says the event is cancelled.
If that is not the case, than yes, I would like the address please!
Thank you!

Hi Shelly,

You're actually looking at the January 2014 depot. Here's the link to the current depot. It's tonight. Please let me know if you need the address.

Just what I was looking for, thanks Malin

Comment by Malin Hansen on January 13, 2014 at 10:31pm

Colin, we will have several large plastic bags set up, one for each plastic category 1) soft plastics, i.e. any plastic bags, wraps or packaging, 2) hard plastics, i.e. any hard plastics, but w/metal parts etc. removed, 3) styrofoam blocks, 4) styrofoam containers, i.e. cups and food take out containers, 5) styrofoam peanuts and other "soft" styrofoam, 6) wax lined beverage containers, 7) milk cartons (separate from other beverage containers), 8) foil lined bags packaging and wraps). It is easiest if you have your plastics sorted before you come by. Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks for hosting this!

I was wondering if there are any written guidelines anywhere on how to best sort this stuff. Thanks!

That is great Natasha!!! Please send me an e-mail to with you address as soon as you can. I will have to send it to the company that will pick up the bags on Friday. I will also send out your address to the list of participants in a couple of days. Would 6-7pm work for you? I will come by to help you out. Thanks again for helping out!
