City offices often receive holiday cards from community businesses and appreciative residents. After the holiday season, the City is sending its cards to St. Judes Ranch to be reused. So far, more than 757 cards have been collected from offices and employees. St. Jude’s Ranch for Children turns them into new cards that can be purchased to help support their non-profit program. Cards can also be reused locally for crafts, gift tags or postcards.  When recycling cards, first remember to remove felt, glitter, metallic foil, photos and any other non-paper items as these parts can’t be recycled and should be sent to the landfill. Click here to watch a short video on the effort.
