50th Rotary rummage sale aims to cut waste

Organizers of the 50th Rotary Auction and Rummage Sale want to trim down the amount of waste that’s hauled away after Saturday’s buying frenzy is over.

Last year, just over 30 tons of post-sale junk was hauled to the landfill. That’s a lot, but it’s a lot less than the 70 tons produced in 2001. Since then, Rotary has worked to increase recycling and allow nonprofits to pick over the leftovers before they’re trucked off.
