For the second year in a row, the Library will host a "go green" initiative in the community. Last year over 115 families participated in the Borough Wide Trash to Treasure Garage Sale! The streets of Totowa were alive as treasure hunters traversed the Borough looking for bargains.
The feedback from residents was very positive: "thanks for doing this, our street attracted a lot of traffic" "this is way better than doing it on your own as an individual sale." This year the Library hopes to attract even more participants and garage sale seekers! Participants must register their address via the Library's website, thus adding their address to the map. Every household receives a "STOP HERE" sign to be placed on their lawn or driveway.
Separately, there will be a shredding and electronic waste collection fundraiser going on at the Library, located at 537 Totowa Road. Last year over 5,380 pounds of paper was collected from residents and businesses. This paper is 100% recycled and processed into paper products! Additionally, the Library will host a clothing and household goods collection. In keeping with the "green" initiative, "Sprouting Totowa" will once again sell plants to help residents get started on their gardens. See flyer for more details!
