Recycling Opportunities

  • Contact the Asingers if you have water softener bags to recycle and contact Jackie Smolen or the Asingers for recycling Styrofoam.
  • Collection of defunct holiday lights continues through January. You can drop them off in the box under Social Justice table in the north room.
  • The Climate Justice Team plans to have a metal recycling day in May. We encourage you to start saving items for this event. Contact Sue Asinger with any questions.

Parking Updates

UUCM is growing, and welcoming many visitors each Sunday. As a result, our parking situation can be challenging on Sunday mornings, especially when there is snow. We are trying to maximize our parking capacity by creating space for compact cars on the North driveway and clearing the snow from the outlot just west of the church. While we work on longer-term solutions, here are other ways you can help:

  1. Come early to allow yourself time to find suitable parking and park as efficiently as possible.
  2. Reduce the number of cars. Take one car per household or park one car offsite.
  3. Carpool with friends.
