Fall is here! October is focused on waste reduction. Mayor Rick Chrest has proclaimed the third week in October as Waste Reduction Week. We will have several of our trained ambassadors at the Brandon Shoppers Mall Oct.22-23 for giveaways and to promote the 4R's Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rethink! The green cart program will be running until the first week of Novemember if you have excess leaves, however we encourage you to leave the leaves in your yard for the bees to winter over.
