SA3 Community Recycling is getting a head start for Teacher Appreciation Week by hosting a "Bring a Bag, Fill a Box" event on May 2. SA3 Community Recycling is a local family business aimed at helping the community reuse and recycle. Last October, they launched a new curbside program that made it convenient and easy for the community to donate their gently used clothing, shoes, and home goods. Since starting this program, they began to receive a steady supply of gently used and new school supplies.
