Did you know burning chemically treated or processed wood is hazardous to your health? Or that smoke from as few as two family "burn barrels" can emit as much pollution as as a well-controlled 200-ton daily municipal incinerator?
Burnwise, a program of the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection and local partners, PA DEP and the Air Quality Partnership remind you to limit materials you burn this winter season. In fact, the better option is always to recycle as much household material and yard waste as possible to keep acidic smoke and dioxins out of our air. And, be sure to sign up for daily air quality forecasts at www.airqualitypartnership.org.

Ride On, our free bike share program, has added three new locations:
The Barndt Agency, Sumneytown
Generations of Indian Valley, Souderton
Lansdale Public Library
These join previous hubs at the Upper Perk YMCA in Pennsburg, the Upper Perk Library in Red Hill, the Indian Valley Library in Telford, Hatfield Borough Hall and the Peter Becker Community in Harleysville (PBC residents only).
To use a bike, simply visit any location (except PBC) and show a photo ID, sign a waiver that you agree to wear a helmet and follow the rules of the road. It's that easy!
There is NO COST to you and bikes can be used for work-related reasons or for leisure. The bikes will soon be equipped with bells and baskets will be available for use at each location. The Partnership TMA sells discounted bike helmets in several sizes for only $13.
Please contact the Mobility Hotline at 1.866.507.4857 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Collaborative for Health and Human Services is currently accepting applications for its new Volunteer Drivers Club. The program, designed by The Partnership TMA, will service residents who live in the Souderton, North Penn and Wissahickon school districts and need a one-time roundtrip ride to a medical appointment or grocery store.
If you or someone you know has 1-2 hours a month to donate, please consider signing up as a volunteer driver to help seniors and others without any other form of transportation.
For more information, please contact The Partnership TMA at 1-866-507-4857 or email@example.com.
