     Thank you for your participation in bringing cans and plastic bottles last month.

It was successful. We collected $12.50 which will be added to our new building fund.

I have to inform you that glass bottles, such as wine and others made with glass were not accepted at the recycle center. We now collect only cans(CA cash refund) and plastic bottles that contained water since the recycle center did not accept plastic milk, juice, shampoo or detergent bottles.
