Includes document shredding & giveways

Post Date:03/27/2017 11:21 AM

The Chatham County Solid Waste & Recycling Division hosts an Earth Day event on Saturday, April 22.  The annual event is open to all Chatham County residents (no decal needed) and will feature free document shredding, free take back of unwanted medications, compost bin sales, household hazardous waste collection, mulch sales, educational booths, raffle prizes, and give-a-ways.

The Earth Day event will be at the Main Solid Waste & Recycling Facility, located at 28 County Services Road about six miles west of Pittsboro, off Highway 64.  The event schedule is below.

County staff will provide give-a-ways and are available to answer questions about solid waste and recycling services. Representatives from Chatham County Cooperative Extension, Land & Water Resources, and Parks & Recreation will provide educational booths and activities.  Residents can enter to win one of several door prizes, including a wheel barrow, rain barrel, compost bin, load of mulch, tree, garden supplies, and more.

Free paper document shredding is available. Chatham residents can bring up to three boxes or bags of paper.  The service provides a post-tax season opportunity for residents to safely destroy and recycle old tax records, credit card statements, and other personal documents.

The Chatham County Sheriffs Office will conduct a medicine take back as a safe way for residents to get rid of unwanted medications.  No needles, sharps, or liquids will be accepted.

Enviro World backyard compost bins will be on sale for $45. A companion kitchen collector is only $5. Cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted.

The event coincides with the countys usual Saturday mulch sale. Mulch is $5 per scoop, which is approximately one cubic yard.  County staff loads the mulch. Bring a tarp to secure the load of mulch. Cash or checks are accepted.

xx Chatham Comprehensive Plan
March 21, 2017, 08:11:13 AM by rezident
If you're interested, there is a survey over on PlanChatham.com to provide feedback on the plan.  I was told that supposedly there will be some public input sessions in April.  In looking at the survey, the questions are biased towards the Board of Commissioners' goals of limiting and significantly restricting growth.  To me, many of the items, such as Conservation Subdivisions, are an overreaction to Chatham Park.  Looking at the Parks part of the plan, Western Chatham gets left behind again.  Feel free to comment and show up to the public input sessions, but if the past is any indicator, it's unlikely the Board of Commissioners will listen to anyone outside of their own echo chamber.

Jarod from Jim's Outdoors here. I just wanted to let everyone know that we have added a good amount of new products including turkey gear and fishing supplies so please come by and check it out. Also my new neighbor Jill Wenstrand owner of State Farm is hosting a block party next Sat the 25th from 1-4. She is going to have a bouncy house, free ice cream, free face painting, and more. We are at 193 Lowe's Drive and it is a L shaped building and we are on the far side. Just look for the signs it's starting to look like election day around here. Hope to see you soon.

xx Chatham County band teacher charged with list of sex crimes involving student
March 10, 2017, 10:23:58 AM by Silk_Hope

There needs to be a rule that a teacher cannot have one on one contact with a student, when ever contact is made 2 adults must be in the room.

If guilty this guy needs to be 6 feet under.
