A small museum may have to shut its doors if Saint Oscar the Grouch doesn’t open his trash can full of money and save the day. For sixteen years, the Garbage Museum was supported by revenues from an adjoining recycling center that processes about 30,000 tons of recyclables a year. Unfortunately, the center lost about $200,000 in funding when long-term contracts ended. Hopefully in the next couple days, local businesses, municipalities and private citizens will rev up donations and pledges to keep the museum from closing on July 1. $52,000 has been raised already, but the museum owners Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority (CRRA) need to raise at least $60,000 to $100,000 more. Save the Trash-o-saurus and 12th most popular tourist attraction in the New Haven area!
