FAQs:

1) What do I need to do when I pick up my box?

  • Arrive at the store between 2pm and 7pm on your pick up day
  • Drop your name with a Legacy Greens staff member and we'll check you off the list.
  • The boxes are made of card board and are intended to be taken home and either re-used in your home or re-cycled. Should you want to limit your consumption of cardboard in this program, you may decide to bring a re-usable bag or container so you can transfer the contents of your box . Whatever is convenient for you!

2) What if I’m away on a pick-up day?

  • You have a couple options:
    • Give your box to a friend. No need to notify us, your friend can drop your name when they pick up.
    • If you notify us a week in advance, we will arrange to have a “doubled-up” box the week before or the week after you are away. Contact Jordan at Jordan@legacygreens.com.

3) I’m moving and I can no longer participate!
