Recyclers meet St. Patrick at Gold Hill

       Two “green” themes - St. Patrick's Day and environmental preservation - are being co-promoted for a free recycling event at Gold Hill Mesa's Exchange Building community center Sunday, March 14.
       Between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., people are invited to bring recyclables and household “junk” to the center at 142 S. Raven Mine Drive (below the clock tower, off Lower Gold Camp Road, east of 21st Street), according to Gold Hill Mesa spokesperson Stephanie Edwards.
       Participants can help themselves to sandwiches and snacks, and live Celtic music will be performed by area musician Jerry Brown, Edwards said.
       The event is in conjunction with Waste Management's “single stream” recycling policy. Accepted will be glass, plastic, metal, cardboard and paper products, a flyer states.
       Hazardous materials, such as paint and motor oil, will not be taken.
       “We support sustainability for the earth, so we're inviting people up to recycle,” Edwards said.
       Currently with more than 65 homes and 200 residents, Gold Hill Mesa is a growing residential and commercial development bordered by Highway 24, Lower Gold Camp and 21st Street.
