The Hive Bottle & Can Drive

Begins July 1st

The sun has been shining, the graduation parties are happening and those pesky cans and bottles just keep piling up.  Never fear the HIVE is here!  During the month of July we are going to help our community Reduce the amount of waste and help Recycle the cans and bottles for you.  What’s the Reward you ask? All the money collected will help fund our Teen Advisory Board’s youth conference they attend each year, after which, they return better leaders for our community.
