Anything With A Plug
UCP’s Sacred Activism Team is sponsoring a new EarthCare initiative! Keep it out of the dump! Dump it on us, is an opportunity to recycle any small to medium sized electronic device or appliance with a plug.
During the months of January, May and October, UCP accepts these items on Sundays before and after service or in the office Tues-Fri between 11:30-4:30.
Founder and Owner of Anything With a Plug Recycling.com Inc., Dennis Carter, grew up around many factories and mills in Dayton, Ohio. Dennis wondered where these items went after their usefulness was over. The answers startled him … dumpsters and ultimately landfills.
Over time, the landfills overflowed with junk, and much of that junk contained harmful, toxic material. Most people didn’t know just how harmful their electronic waste was. And some maybe, didn’t care. Even if people did care, they didn’t have a responsible, affordable, and convenient way to dispose of broken, burned out appliances and electronic waste until recently.
Dennis decided to do something about it. In summer of 2012, Dennis started Anything With a Plug Recycling.com to help people dispose of unused, broken, or unwanted electronics in an environmentally safe way. They started with residential removal, but because of the community’s urgent need, they quickly expanded to serve businesses, community organizations, and governmental agencies.
Anything With a Plug Recycling.com works with everyone – from real estate offices and thrift stores to medical offices and commercial property owners.
Anything With a Plug Recycling.com recycles everything locally in an environmentally sound manner. Almost nothing goes to the landfill.
Wear For All
UCP is supporting Amity United Methodist Church's Clothes Closet initiative called Wear for All. We are collecting gently used clothing for all ages. We donate types of clothing dependent on the season. For the Spring and Summer seasons you may donate any light weight clothing items such as shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, short sleeved shirts, light weight pants, dresses or warm weather shoes. For the Fall and Winter seasons you may donate warm clothing and shoes such as sweaters, sweatsuites, long sleeved shirts, pants, dresses, hats, scarves, gloves, boots, etc.
Please drop all bagged clothing items in the white basket in the UCP foyer.
You may contribute on Sundays after service or come by UCP, Tues-Fri between 12pm-4pm for drop off. Thank you for your caring spirit and thoughtful donations!
