What a fantastic idea. The Norristown Police Departments lobby is now designated a "Safe Zone" for Craigs List transactions. So if you are selling or purchasing on Craigs List you are welcome to go to the lobby instead of having strangers in your home.
Forgo the straw!

Be very careful about what you put on your lawn & driveway.
"Concentrated development in urbanized areas substantially increases impervious surfaces, such as streets, driveways and parking lots. These surfaces are the primary collector of pollutants until a rain washes them into nearby storm drains. Common pollutants include pesticides, fertilizers, oils, salt, litter, and sediment. Storm drains do not run to treatment plants. They empty directly into waterways. When left uncontrolled, these discharges can result in fish kills, destruction of wildlife habitats, and contamination of drinking water and recreational waterways. Sediment from yard debris and construction sites can cause stream bank erosion, vegetation destruction, and flooding. It is therefore extremely important to recognize that individual actions can multiply the effect on water quality."
Individual actions= that means us!
