Inkjet cartridge collection
Wesley United Methodist Church, 1200 Logan Avenue in Tyrone, is now collecting empty inkjet cartridges for recycling. Cartridges can be brought to the church during office hours (weekdays 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.) and deposited in the collection bin.
Simply place the old cartridge in a plastic sandwich bag and deposit it in the collection bin. Most businesses simply throw their empty cartridges in the garbage so check at work to see if they would donate their would-be garbage. No large laser cartridges are accepted with this program and will not fit through the holes on the collection box.
Recycling inkjet cartridges has a positive impact on the environment. Consider the following: nearly one million inkjets are thrown into landfills every day. Less than five percent of the cartridges produced are recycled. It takes 1,000 years for the plastic to decompose.
Questions about the program can be directed to the church office at 684-3341.

Breaking Bread Ministry
The Church of the Good Shepherd wants those within the community and surrounding areas to know that Breaking Bread Ministry is on-going, not just during the Lenten season. One has only to inquire at the church or call 684-1955 between 9 a.m. and noon during the week to confirm Breaking Bread Ministry is open to all and eager to support those who request this service. The Church of the Good Shepherd has selected this ministry as a way to provide assistance, and is finding that Breaking Bread Ministry is becoming of growing interest throughout the area.
