Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program is an initiative of the Internal Revenue Service that provides free tax preparation and filing for low and moderate income households, people with disabilities, and those with limited English proficiency.

 

Life Transforming Ministries (LTM) will have preparation sites throughout Chester County for anyone interested in having their taxes prepared by the VITA Program. Due to the pandemic, the program is offering DROP-OFF Services Only this year. Drop off locations will open beginning Monday January 31, 2022.

No Plastic Bags, No Pizza Boxes

Beginning the week of October 19th, we will begin to reject improperly presented recyclables to avoid possible new charges from SECCRA if we do not keep our stream of recycling materials clean. We need everybody’s help to accomplish this.

No Plastic Bags
SECCRA, where the recyclables we collect are processed, will no longer accept recycling in plastic bags — no trash bags or retailer bags. These bags clog the processing machines and are THE number one contaiminate in the recycling process. Single use retailer bags should be saved and recycled at your retailer of choice. Giant and Lowe’s both have collection boxes at their entrances.

No Pizza Boxes
SECCRA will not accept pizza boxes.

 

 

It’s a Toilet, Not a Trash Can!

It’s a Toilet, Not a Trash Can!

Please see the following important list of things that should not be placed into the sewer system either via your toilets or sink drains. One thing that’s not on the list and we’ve encountered are Swiffer cleaning pads. Any of the items on the list can cause lift station pumps to clog which has happened recently. Flushable wipes are also not something that should be flushed regardless of the marketing of the product.

Please be diligent and throw away anything on this list.
