Vanessa Griffin: Has online Christmas shopping left you covered up in boxes? Hi, I’m Vanessa Griffin with Griffin Real Estate Group, and I have a solution for you that’s easy, free, and environmentally friendly.
You can visit the Tyler Recycling Center at 418 N. Bois D’Arc, downtown not far from our office, and drop off your recyclables like these cardboard boxes. We’re going to give you a link to all of the items that can be dropped off there, and any preparations that you have to make to them before you drop them off directly on our website. It’s going to be on our blog.
You can go to griffinrealestategroup.com, check out our blog, or you can click the More Info button below, and it will take you right to that site. Again, it’s Vanessa Griffin with Griffin Real Estate Group, hoping that you recycle your recyclables, and have a great home buying and selling day.
