Freezing summer squash – Choose young squash with tender skin. Wash and cut into one half inch slices. Water blanch three minutes. Cool promptly, drain and package, leaving one-half-inch headspace. Seal and freeze.

Yes, we are back in business full force at Renaissance Recycling!
Here are some helpful hints that will help us to process recyclables much quicker and help tremendously with our amount of trash:
Please remove lids from all bottles and jars (metal lids go in the tin can window), and make sure food is completely rinsed out of all containers. We are receiving some recyclables with quite a bit of food waste still in them and these cannot be recycled so they have to be thrown in the trash. Remember the idea is to reduce the amounts going to the landfill.
