The Elk County Community Recycling Center is rapidly approaching the half-ton mark for No. 5 plastics.
"We have about another dozen boxes of No. 5 plastic to ship," said Elk County Recycling/Solid Waste Coordiantor Bekki Titchner during Tuesday night's Solid Waste Authority meeting. "We have a whole mountain to take to the post office again.
"We are approaching 1,000 pounds of the stuff. It's pretty amazing."
Members of the local Women Who Care, a giving circle organization, are diligently working on last-minute details of the group's first Spring Rummage Sale planned for Friday and Saturday.
The event will take place inside the Franklin Center, located in downtown St. Marys. The sale begins at 8 a.m. each day and concludes at 4 p.m. on Friday and 1 p.m. on Saturday.
"There will be lots of good stuff that everybody needs," said event co-chair Connie Amendola.
All proceeds from the sale will benefit Women Who Care grants and the endowment fund.
