Help reduce pollution entering the Grand River

Help reduce pollution entering the Grand River

From: http://www.cityofgrandville.com

Grandville is working to better manage storm water runoff. As a resident of Grandville, you have the ability to help reduce the amount of pollution entering the storm sewer system and ultimately reaching the Grand River and Lake Michigan.

WHAT IS STORM WATER POLLUTION?

When it rains, storm water flows over lawns, streets, and parking lots carrying with it road dirt, fertilizers, oil, and grease into storm drains, which are often located alongside streets and parking lots.

WHERE DO STORM DRAINS LEAD?

Storm drains lead directly to nearby streams and lakes without any type of treatment. Storm water entering storm drains or catch basins in Grandville ultimately reaches the Grand River and Lake Michigan.

HOW CAN I HELP REDUCE STORM WATER POLLUTION?

Saturday, November 10, 9:00am to 3:00pm

This year’s city-wide leaf drop off will once again be held at Roark’s Lawn and Garden located at 5340 Chicago Drive. It is preferred that leaves be loose or in paper bags; however, for ease of transport, you may  bring them to the site in plastic bags and empty them. Please plan to take your bags with you as there is no trash removal available to the City at this site.

No large branches, brush, or garbage will be accepted.

ID’s will be checked by City personnel to verify residency. No exceptions will be allowed. This is a service funded  by City taxpayer dollars and will only be available to residents.

Recycling Electronics Brings Community Together

Recycling Electronics Brings Community Together

On Saturday June 23, 2012, the Hudsonville Area Chamber of Commerce hosted an electronics recycling drive to give back as a community, which turned out to be an enormous success.

People all over Hudsonville came out to River City Flooring, who hosted the event, to show support for their community and the environment. Overall 17,878 pounds of electronics were donated, as well as $653 in cash donations.

All the electronics we collected by a local recycler, Comprenew, which is a non-profit organization with a mission to benefit the community. Shelley Huard, Sales Representative from Comprenew said, “It was wonderful to pair up with the Hudsonville Area Chamber of Commerce and Love INC. and be able to benefit the whole community with the recycle drive.” Comprenew does not ship e-Waste overseas, which is part of their zero-landfill policy requiring that all e-Waste received is recycled, refurbished, or reused.
