SJAM Winter Trail Fundraising Night – October 9

Facebook event:
More info about the trail:

Since the trail is funded and run by volunteers, they need to raise the money to keep it running (gasoline, snowmobile repairs and that sort of thing) this winter. You can donate to them in the usual ways, or visit the fundraiser, where they are auctioning off or giving away some interesting items (see for teases).

Hazardous Waste Disposal at Tunney’s Pasture – Sept 15

As described in we have local waste depots twice this year, for disposing of paint, old electronics and other things too dangerous for regular garbage.

The depot runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Tunney’s Pasture. The last one this year is on Sunday, September 15, 2019.

Some of the odder and more dangerous things I’ve brought and the chemical experts at the depot had fun looking over – old gardening chemicals with Malathion (still used for West Nile mosquitoes), DDT and Chlordane.
