Make This A Seasonal Household Keeper

WELLAND – A lot of the inserts that come with the local newspaper go out with the trash. Oops, you’re not supposed to do that any more, so they go out in the grey box for recycling instead.
But not this one, courtesy Niagara Region. This insert, Green Scene, which arrived earlier this week is a keeper. It deserves to be.
The eight-page section is rich in environmental information, graphics, photos and stuff that’s great to know. It’s visually appealing, which is important, and an easy read.
The cover caught my eye with great graphics about curbside battery collection, annual spring branch collection and compost giveaway.
The inside is a treasure chest of riches like: Earth Week activities, bicycle recycling, booking online for large item collection, Humberstone landfill expansion and even an update on GO Train Service, among others.
It arrived with a slew of other inserts in this week’s newspaper, which is unfortunate. It might have been missed by many readers, especially those who discard the inserts “en masse” without even bothering to see what they’re about. In this case, what a waste!

    Right on!  I always keep mine, but I do know people who, as you have mentioned, toss the whole bundle of inserts into the grey box.! Hilda
