Decorating with Care Remember safety and take extra care as you hang all your holiday decorations and lights. • Make sure lights and electric decorations have the UL seal • Be sure anything electrical put outdoors is labeled for outdoor use • Don't handle lights while they're plugged in • Don't string too many lights together or overload sockets • Never use cords that are frayed or damaged • Don't run extension cords in traffic paths or over metal • Make sure lights aren't touching paper or metal • Keep electrical decorations away from water • When using a ladder, keep it away from power lines • Always unplug lights when you leave home or go to bed • Keep real trees watered • LED lights are safer, use less power and last much longer* . . . Helping Others with Care By contributing to Project: People Who Care, you can help your neighbors in need pay their utility bills. PWC customers can add donations to their PWC bill payment. (Bank draft customers should call 223-4134.) Others can send donations to: Project: P.W.C. • P.O. Box 7000 • Fayetteville, NC 28302 . . . Treating Our Environment with Care Give your holiday tree a proper send-off. Rather than tossing it in the trash, recycle it*. You'll be doing our local parks a big favor! For nearly a quarter century Fayetteville PWC, the City of Fayetteville, and Duke Energy Progress have partnered to recycle trees as mulch. Fayetteville-Cumberland County Parks and Rec will use the mulch for beds and paths. If you live within City limits, please put your tree out for pick-up by the morning of January 6, 2020. Or drop off your tree at the Community Garden (intersection of Vanstory and Mann Streets) any time before 8:30am on Saturday, January 11th. www.faypwc.com "The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney with Care..."
