A Message from our Executive Director:

Julie, our RECO, is in Hanson and Middleborough this month, teaching their residents to recycle right.  Tell all your friends: plastic bags go to the gocery store, not in the bin!

The SSRC is seeking a volunteer/intern for 10-15 hours to help with digital outreach.  See the posting here.
