The Smithfield Community Drop-off Site has been removed due to repeated and increasing illegal dumping of garbage in and around the bins. We are hoping to find another location in Smithfield, in the meantime residents can use any of our other Drop-offs with the closest two being in Dillonvale or Adena.
ATTENTION!!! BOTH OF OUR OFFICES HAVE MOVED!…
THE BELMONT OFFICE MOVED JULY 27th
The JBGT Belmont Office and vehicles and now in one central location!!! We are excited to announce a building has been purchased that will now house the Belmont staff and vehicles under one roof. The JB Green Team Belmont County staff is very excited to be in a new combined office and garage for the recycling trucks. We are now at our new location (the former A-1 Tire Service building) at 67895 Pickering Rd. St. Clairsville, just off National Rd. We are very excited to have a location where the trucks can now be out of the weather after work hours and the staff can share one location. We thank the Belmont County Board of Developmental Disabilities for having provided a location to park these recycling trucks in the past.
The JB Green Team Belmont County phone number will remain the same: (740) 296-5376. If you stop by or need assistance while we are moving please call (740) 296-6005.
We will continue to accept household dry cell batteries at the new office location. We also look forward to holding an open house and inviting everyone to stop in and see us sometime soon.
THE JEFFERSON OFFICE MOVED ON AUGUST 1st
The Jefferson County Office moved on August 1st out of Steubenville City Hall to an office located on Canton Road (just across from NAPA) However our mailing address is 125 Technology Way. Our phone number(s) will remain the same.
CREATIVE REUSE: JUNK JOURNAL CLASSES
In an effort for JB Green Team to promote reuse, the second in the famous 3R’s, we got people together to encourage people to see old papers and cardboard boxes in a new way! Imagine a scrapbook that you have made with things you’d normally recycle, instead of buying new in a store. Junk journaling allows us to think outside the box and can turn into a hobby that will last a lifetime. Workshops have been held at the Ohio Valley Mall in St. Clairsville since October and we hope to continue them in the future!
If you want to join the fun or are part of a group looking for a creative reuse project to get started, please contact Emily Good at (740)296-5376.
EDUCATING HEAD START STUDENTS
Children ages 3-5 involved in Belmont County Head Start Programs will be learning about how to care for the planet by reducing waste and recycling properly with JB Green Team! We met with two excited groups in the month of November and look forward to getting into many more in the next few months. It’s amazing the way kids get so excited to learn new things so teaching about the environment to small children has so many benefits. If you know of pre-schools, or library groups looking for something new in their learning space, JB Green Team is great to keep in mind! For details on what we offer contact us.
