The City of Eureka is excited to announce a local solution to a global problem.
The international recycling market has collapsed leaving states and municipalities changing the collection and allocation of recycled materials. Recycled materials which were previously shipped and sold to China are now stuck in the states with little alternatives for domestic recycling processing and sales.
The City of Eureka is launching a new local glass recycling program to address this very issue.
Currently, glass containers are differentiated by CRV and non-CRV. CRV stands for California Redemption Value. CRV containers charge an automatic deposit at time of sale which is redeemable when turned back into a CRV collection location. Eureka residents should continue to bring their CRV glass to Humboldt Waste Management Authority (HWMA) for redemption or place into their Recology recycling totes. This new program is specifically for non-CRV glass.
The self drop-off program will have three bin locations spread across Eureka of which all are free and accessible 24/7.
The locations include:
Eureka Municipal Auditorium (1120 F Street)
Highland Park (dead end of High Street off of McDonald Street),
Adorni Center Public Parking Area (southeast corner of L and Waterfront Drive)
We have two Camp NET Scholarships available for two children!
We can provide 50% off if they qualify through EBT, Social Security, or Partnership Health Plan of California (HPC) benefits. We must confirm eligibility by viewing proof of benefits. This is first come first served. Please contact the Adorni at 707.441.4248 – QUICKLY – if you’re interested.
There will be a preview day January 28th at the John Ryan Youth Center, 1653 J Street, from 12-1pm and 5-6pm. This will be a great opportunity to meet our new preschool director and our other teachers, see the facility for yourselves, and learn about what our preschool will have to offer your little one.
