Window Dressers Recap

Woodstock's Window Dressers Community Build

Here are some great stats from our build:

-We had over 80 volunteers join us to help

-We built 235 inserts for 26 families

-Window Dressers estimates that on average, 10 inserts will save 105 gallons of heating fuel — which at around $5.50/gallon, amounts to more than $550 in savings per year. That means we're saving ~2,467 gallons of fuel, or $13,571.

We would like to thank the North Universalist Chapel Society for hosting our week-long build in their social space, and to Mascoma Bank and the Canaday Family Charitable Trust for funding this project. Many thanks to the Woodstock Farmer’s Market for donating food for our volunteers. We are also grateful to our community of volunteers for stepping up to keep neighbors warm this winter, including volunteers from the Woodstock Rotary, North Chapel, Bethany Mennonite Church, Hypertherm, Woodstock Union High School and many others.

Why is your paint and your window cleaner not wanted at a hazardous waste event?

What? I can recycle batteries and paint???

What will you do with your vehicle or e-bike battery when it dies?

What's a "non-covered" electronic?

Why aren't you recycling your Styrofoam?

Have you given up on sorting your food scraps? If so, what will you say to the Vice Squad when they knock on your door?

Who calls the shots about what I can recycle and why should I believe them?

Ham Gillett will answer all of these questions and ask if you recycled your Valentine's Day chocolate wrappers at our monthly Green Drinks series. Ham is the Outreach Coordinator for the Greater Upper Valley and Southern Windsor/Windham Counties solid waste management districts.

Join us to ask questions, air your frustrations, or maybe even learn something. Submit your questions ahead of time or ask them on the spot.
