When the campaigns are over, what happens to all those signs? It’s a question members of Keep Indian River Beautfiul are answering with an emphatic “reuse.”
Executive Director Kristy Sturdivant wants candidates – and their supporters – to find life for their signs after the Nov. 3 elections. “Consider donating the unwanted signs to Keep Indian River Beautiful’s ReUse Exchange Center,” Sturdivant said. “By covering the existing information with poster board or paint, campaign signs can be used to announce a yard sale or gift wrapped in celebratory paper to direct guests to a party.” Campaign sign donors can drop off their signs at Habitat for Humanity on US 1, the Senior Resource Association on 6th Avenue and 14th Street or visit KIRB at 1255 Main Street in Sebastian on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
“By diverting reusable materials from the landfill, you are making a difference in your community,” Sturdivant said. For more information on the Reuse Exchange Center call Keep Indian River Beautiful at (772) 388-5472.
Keep Indian River Beautiful, Inc.’s mission is to empower individuals to take greater responsibility for their community environments by involving volunteers in litter prevention and reduction, beautification, neighborhood revitalization, recycling and conservation education.
