Going Green!

Bedford Park District is going green with several earth friendly initiatives. Please help us out by:

  • Bringing in your used print cartridges.
  • Bringing in recycled craft ideas.
  • Keeping the parks and playgrounds free from pollution including paper, plastic bottles, and cans.

Participants in our craft classes would appreciate the following items for our recycled craft projects: buttons, empty jars, altoid tins, beads, and cigar boxes. Please drop off any of these items at the Administration Office or call 708.458.2265 and we will make every effort to pick it up.
