How Can I Participate?
Materials are accepted by appointment at GLOW’s annual collection. You may call the GLOW Office to have your name placed on our notification list. We will then notify you by postcard in 2 months prior to the collections that it is time to register. The 2016 Collection in Batavia is scheduled for September 17th. Appointments will begin being accepted July 18th.
Two weeks before the collection you will be sent a packet of information that includes directions to the site, safety information and the list of acceptable and unacceptable materials. You must bring your envelope to the collection to give to an attendant. It will have your time highlighted in the top left corner of the label and serves as proof that you have an appointment.
