The Trinity youth will be helping the Southwest Texas Chapter of the Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA) at the free recycling collection event on Saturday, October 3rd, 2009. This event is for recycling items which many find more difficult to recycle. The collection is open to all non-commercial members of the community. Simply drive up, provide your zip code, and volunteers will help unload your items. The collection will accept ONLY the following:

Batteries (household, auto)
Oil in a closed container (motor oil, cooking oil)
Paint in a closed container (latex only, wet or dry)
Antifreeze in a closed container
Handheld Electronics (phones, media players, games)
CFL Bulbs (unbroken glass only)

Trinity members can bring items for recycling to Trinity on 2 Sundays in September (9/20 and 9/27) and/or bring them straight to the recycling event on 10/3. The location of the event is the parking lot north of St. John’s United Methodist Church, 2140 Allandale (2222 @ Burnet) that is shared with Lamar Middle School. After the collection volunteers will pack and transport these items to local recycling facilities.

The mission of MFSA is to educate, promote and act on Jesus’ teachings of God’s radical love and justice for all, which includes a continuing commitment to environmental issues. Donations for the work of MFSA will be accepted.
