America Recycles Day Celebration
Every year in November, America Recycles Day is celebrated nationwide to encourage everyone to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle where reducing, repurposing or donating are the first options, followed by recycling or proper disposal.
The City will be hosting its annual America Recycles Day event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 16 at the AQMD parking lot located at 21865 Copley Drive. This free family-friendly event will have different earth-friendly stations where attendees can:
- Donate unwanted clothing, footwear or linen.
- Drop off household electronics for recycling or proper disposal.
- Have up to five grocery bags of confidential documents securely shredded on site.
- Collect up to 80 gallons of mulch to take home for spreading under trees and planting beds. This is a self-serve station – gloves, shovel and bags or containers are needed.
The event will also feature various exhibits and booths aimed at educating, inspiring and providing incentives and giveaways for developing everyday habits that conserve resources and reduce the amount of waste going to landfills. Some of the agencies with representatives working the booths are Southern California Edison, Walnut Valley Water District and Waste Management.
Children in attendance will be entertained with arts and crafts, and an interactive EnviroScape model that demonstrates how ocean pollution can result from activities and sources in our own backyards and neighborhood.
