SustainFloyd will host a monthly recycling event at the Floyd Farmers Market the first Saturday of each month from 10:00am to 12:30pm beginning in May 2022. We will collect a variety of different items each month. It is important that all items are clean and dry when you drop them off. We will be storing them until we have sufficient to ship. Thank you for your help!
