It's Golf Responsibly and we introduced it to the TBC Classic on October 3 when a shotgun start began play on two beautiful courses for 72 foursomes. It was another Annapolis Green Zero-Waste event!

Holiday Lights Recycling

A merry group of volunteers gathered at the lot next to Lemongrass and made quick work of recycling the lights in the beautiful garlands that graced downtown businesses over the holidays.

On Saturday, January 6, the Annapolis Jaycees took down the holiday garlands and delivered them to the lot next to Lemongrass, 167 West Street, where our team of volunteers separated the lights from the greens so that it all doesn't end up in the landfill.

In just under two hours we ended up with about 120 pounds of light strings and a very tall pile of greens. The lights will be recycled, thanks to Annapolis Green's partnership with MOM's Organic Market. MOM's gets the lights to Capitol Asset Recycling who then breaks them down through smelting or shredding to recover raw commodities. These raw commodities are then used to create roofing and construction materials, piping, car batteries, other electronics, lead wheel weights, flatware, jewelry, and more!

The greens will be picked up by Public Works.

We are so grateful for everyone who helped make this job quick and fun!

And we are taking any holiday lights you want to recycle -- whether they work or not. See below.

Give Your Natural Christmas Tree a New Life

Before you put that Christmas tree out for pickup by City or County services, consider how it could provide shelter for birds and other wildlife in your backyard during the winter. Take off the ornaments and tinsel, of course (especially anything made of plastic) and just lay the tree down on its side in your yard. Or add "ornaments" of bird seed feeders, suet, and edible strings made or popcorn or cranberries. Here are some more ideas from the US Fish & Wildlife Service, including how to make "edible ornaments" for the critters in your backyard.

If you haven’t switched over to LED holiday lights yet, start now! We will help you recycle the old, inefficient incandescent strings or any holiday lights that you just don't want anymore. From now until the Jan. 30, bring your unwanted lights to the Annapolis Green House, 92 Maryland Avenue, for recycling. MOM’s Organic Market will send them to a lights recycler. Let’s not put valuable materials into the trash where they will be wasted in a landfill! | learn more

A Brick in Your Honor!

Due the the overwhelming success of our "Start with a Stave" campaign we were able to accomplish a beautiful make-over of our interior space. Now we've shifted our focus to the outdoors to complete the garden with the installation of permeable, engravable bricks in the walkway leading to our porch. We are fortunate to have had the permeable bricks donated by the EP Henry company.

We've started our "Buy a Brick" campaign to help us raise funds. We'll engrave your name on the brick for all to see. Read more.
