A Message from Amherst Green

Councilmembers

Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse - the three R ’s of the modern world. Would you believe that your Amherst Public Libraries are involved in the efforts to cutting down waste in our community? Here’s how they do it. If you own a Kindle or a Nook, you know that public libraries reduce the need for printed materials by having many resources available for download. However, your library card still gives you access at your local branch to thousands of books and magazines. You have the benefit of having a large reading collection without the cost. Each branch has an active paper recycling program. Separating your newspapers from the rest of the recycling materials reduces the contamination it gets from the food containers, allowing a higher percentage to be used at the recycling facility. Fill your old blue totes to the library filled with newspapers and bring it to the library – it’s an easy way to help your branch earn some extra cash. Through its book sales, Amherst Public Libraries are also active in finding a reuse for books. The Audubon branch is having a book sale from January 18-23. You never know what you might find! And, don’t forget to bring some books you no longer need to donate for the next sale. In collaboration with Energy Conservation Citizens Advisory Committee, Amherst Conservation Advisory Council and Recycling & Waste Committee.
