You know all that stuff that you want to get rid of, but it can’t go in the recycling bin and you either hate to throw it out or it’s just plain illegal? This event is for you. Elizabeth is sponsoring the fourth annual Elizabeth Recycles Day on Saturday, May 11th from 9 AM to 12 PM at Upper Independence Park (near the rose garden)
Items you can bring include household hazardous waste (paint, pesticides, cleaners, solvents, fuel, antifreeze, etc.), used oil, hangers (in good condition), electronic equipment (TVs, computers, DVD players, wires, cables, cords, game controllers, remote controls, etc.), batteries, cell phones, CDs & CD cases,compact fluorescent lights, eyeglasses, ink cartridges, plastic bottle caps, blankets & throws, and arts & crafts supplies (fabric, yarn, buttons, magazines, etc.).
Please, no items from businesses, no extra heavy or large items, and nothing that you can put in your recycling rollout cart. Also, please make sure all lids are secure and containers are not leaking. Many of the items will be brought to local businesses and organizations to be reused. The remaining items will be brought to a local recycling center.
Organizers are looking for volunteers to help out during the event and to also lend pickup trucks or other hauling vehicles to transport items.
Please contact Craig Miller at (704) 351-5472 if you are willing to help out or have any questions.
