Crime activity in the neighborhood

In the past two weeks or so, IHNA received separate emails about some crime against our neighbors:

  • I just wanted you to pass along some mischief in the neighborhood.  Someone set the recycle bin on fire at 1126 payne street in the rear parking spot. … They pulled the bin to the center of the parking spot and set it on fire. Please let people know to watch out for the alleys it’s that time of year again.
  • A friend of mine that lives down on Fern St was robbed last night sometime before midnight, he said about $4200 worth of stuff was taken. FYI

Please keep a watchful eye and report suspicious activity to the police.  If you are a victim of a crime, call the police and file a report.

Girl Scouts Recycling Program

Forever Green Capstone Event

E-Waste Recycling Day

When: May 15, 2010

Who & Why: Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana (GSK) will join forces with Global Environmental Services (GES) to address the issue of recycling electronic waste (e-waste). Get your community involved by inviting business, friends, schools and neighbors to bring items.

What: E-waste from your home or business to recycle responsibly, including:

inkjet cartridges                           radios                              DVD players

laser toner cartridges                    fax machines                     VCR players

cell phones                                 hard drives                        TV’s

computers                                  modems                           monitors

keyboards                                  printers                            copiers

and more . . .

We cannot accept household appliances. A good rule thumb is if you can put water in it, it will not be accepted, such as refrigerators, irons, bread makers, etc. There is a $5 charge on the recycling of TV’s and monitors with glass a front (not flat screens). This charge is for the cost of discharging a noxious gas contained in these items.

GES recycles 100% of its electronic waste and none of it is shipped overseas to third world countries.
How: Utilize your grassroots networking connections and spread the word! Let’s make a difference in our community!
