Recycling Education Event is Saturday

Starting Sunday, cardboard no longer accepted at landfill

The public is invited to learn more about recycling cardboard and other materials at a free recycling education event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 31 at the Auld Pavilion, 1650 Memorial Drive, in Antelope Park. In addition to getting their recycling questions answered, participants will have an opportunity to sign a recycling pledge and star in a "Take it to the Bin" video. The event also includes games and activities for children, and local food trucks will be available (purchases are cash only).

The event will also feature recycling videos and other resources and the following exhibits and displays:

As of April 1, clean and dry corrugated cardboard will no longer be accepted at the City landfill. Residents can subscribe to a curbside recycling service or take their cardboard to one of the City's free drop off sites. Businesses may subscribe to a recycling service or take cardboard directly to a recycling processor.

Additional cardboard bins have been installed at the City's 28 multi-material recycling drop off sites. Cardboard bins are also available for several months at four library branches: Walt, 6701 S. 14th Street; Gere, 2400 S. 56th Street; Anderson, 3635 Touzalin; and Eiseley, 1530 Superior Street.
