America Recycles Day at DACC
DACC is hosting an event for America Recycles Day from 11am to 1pm in the Student Union. The goal of this event is to highlight the many different items that can be recycled, including many right here in Vermilion County. The event will feature several informational activities that show what can be recycled as well as what happens to the material after it has been recycled. The event will also draw attention to the current recycling efforts taking place on DACC's campus. This event is part of a broader initiative by Keep America Beautiful.

Congratulations to Ed Hamilton, our 2012 Spring Adopt-A-Spot Lottery. Mr. Hamilton cleans his spot 5 times a week, every week. Great job, Ed!
Do you like to walk? Would you like to influence your children or grandchildren by teaching them a ‘life-long’ habit? If so, then KVCB has the program for you!
Adopt-A-Spot was developed by HALO, Danville’s PRIDE GROWS, and KVCB to give individuals and groups the chance to pick up litter and enter into a litter lottery three times a year earning a chance to win money for doing the right thing…picking up litter.
Adopt-A-Spot is seeking volunteers who will pick up litter at least 3 times per year: once in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Once you register with KVCB (form is below) you can pick your spot and you will be sent a Litter Lottery form at the end of May, August and October. KVCB will give you pickers, vest, gloves and bags, if you need them.
Register TODAY and start teaching the next generation Lesson 1 – DO NOT LITTERAnd Lesson 2 – Pick up any litter you come across to make your part of the world a better, cleaner place!
