Fayette plans Go-Green Day 5.20.09

Written by David Green.

A green weekend is coming up in Fayette, highlighted by Go Green Day on Friday.

Regional Urban Forester Stephanie Miller from the Ohio DNR will walk the village streets Friday to take an inventory of the boulevard trees and advise the village tree commission about the health of the community’s urban forest.

Miller will also guide the commission on which trees should be trimmed and which ones should be removed, and also provide guidance on planting.

From Thursday through Saturday, Fayette’s community-wide garage sales are scheduled, highlighting the recycling of clothing and other goods.

Residents are invited to use the village recycling center—located off Eagle Street by the village barn—to bring in cans and bottles for recycling. Items can be deposited in the 24-hour drop-off bin.

Paper products should not be placed in the drop-off bin due to moisture problems. Newspapers, magazines, cardboard and glass should be brought in on the second Saturday morning of the month.

Several “Go Green” products will be on sale at D&R Hardware.

The events for Go Green Day are sponsored by the Fayette Tree Commission.
