Earth Day is coming and a lot of events start this weekend including:
- CARE's Earth Day festival is Saturday in Lockport. Get all the details at CARE's site.
- Cash for Appliances has begun. Illinois has $6.5 million in rebates for people buying Energy Star appliances right now. The rebates became available Friday and let people buy the items at a discount of 15 percent. Like Cash for Clunkers, once the money's gone, it's over. Sears is actually opening early some days to accomadate Energy Star buyers.
- Oswego's Eco Commission is doing their spring recycling blowout Saturday. I'll be there helping. If you want to recycle it, you can pretty much do it there. Check out Eco's page for info.
