[March 29, 2012]  On Saturday, the Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency will once again participate in the Community Health Fair with recycling opportunities. A healthy environment contributes to the overall well-being of a community and its residents.

HardwareThere will be a glass recycling collection in the front parking lot at Lincoln Community High School from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday. Only container glass will be accepted, meaning it originally contained either a food or beverage product. Participants will need to remove all plastic and metal caps and rings from the containers. All colors of glass are accepted and do not have to be sorted. The glass recycling program does not accept ceramics, dishware, light bulbs, window glass or mirrors. Glass recycling will be canceled in event of inclement weather.

The State Bank of Lincoln will again sponsor confidential on-site paper shredding and hard drive destruction. The shredding and hard drive destruction programs offer residents the opportunity to have items such as financial records, old tax returns and other sensitive household records shredded and destroyed in a secure and confidential manner. Proper disposal of these sensitive items may prevent individuals from becoming victims of identity theft. Paper shredding and hard drive destruction will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday in the front parking lot at LCHS.

As always, this year's Logan County Community Health Fair offers something for everyone, whether your goal is maintain or improve your health, or to complete some spring cleaning and dispose of items in an environmentally friendly way.
