Our Fort Collins, CO Neighborhood

We are a kind, respectful, inclusive neighborhood, working together to build community and reduce our ecological footprint.

Parkwood East has a No Waste Bin of 25 reusable dishes, cups and silverware that can be used at your gathering with family or friends.  The purpose of this Bin is to reduce the use of single use plastics that get thrown away, but really never go away.  They just break down into microplastics that pollute soil and water and end up in our oceans and our bodies.
 
To check out the No Waste Bin, please contact focotrashmob@gmail.com to reserve the bin at least two days before your event.  There is a $20 fee, of which $15 is reimbursed when items are returned in the same condition they were picked up.  You can pick up the bin at Maureen’s house, 1643 Dogwood Court.  We’ll be tracking how much single use plastic is saved in Parkwood East by using this bin!
