Know Where to Throw is Recycle Fun!
I am happy to announce that my office is partnering with City of Tucsons Environmental Services Department and Tucson Clean and Beautiful as a collection site for Know Where to Throw. From October 1-November 3 bring your old garden hoses, bicycle tires, inner tubes, blue jeans and plastic grocery bags to Ward offices and other collection locations throughout the community.
