I am organizing the bottle redemption fundraiser this year. In a nutshell, for Webelos I, we need a couple of volunteers to go sort bottles and cans at the Falmouth Transfer Station during the last few days of December, which starts this Saturday. Once sorted the folks from the Redemption Center will come pick them up and write us a check for the value of the recyclables. Easy money right? The way I see it there are a couple of shifts that we need filled. Basically once for each day the Station is open and twice on Saturday. I figure it will take about 30 minutes or so to complete the sorting for your shift (if you feel so inclined to sign up). I created a Google Doc where you can sign up for a shift. There is a tab for Webelos I & II. Just enter your name. They are highlighted in yellow. Just click on the following link:
Hopefully the spreadsheet is clear enough. I included the dates that the Transfer Station is open. If you take the Tuesday, Thursday or Friday shift you can go any time they are open. Later in the day is probably best but beggars can't be choosers. As for Saturday I am thinking that the first shift should head over around noontime and the second shift around 4:00 PM to wrap things up. Finally, if the shifts fill up and you still want to head over just add your name - can't hurt to have multiple people. Might even be fun for the boys!
One last thing. We are sharing our week with Webelos II so don't be surprised if you see some of the older boys there. Finally, I am not sure if we are on the hook for New Year's as well. If we are I will just expand the signup sheet and let you know.
Contact me anytime with questions.
