Keep Your Junk Out of Landfills!
Don’t Miss Woodridge Rotary Recycling Extravaganza May 16, 2015
Saturday, May 16, from 8 a.m. to noon, the Woodridge Rotary Club and partner groups will hold the 6th Recycling Extravaganza at Cypress Cove Family Aquatic Park, 8301 Janes Ave., Woodridge. In the last four years, over 160,000 pounds of electronics and many other items have been kept out of landfills or distributed for reuse by this event.
The list of items to be collected as of Feb. 1, 2015, is still being worked on, but it will include electronic items, household batteries, used bicycles and their parts, American flags, shoes of all kinds, eye glasses and hearing aids, buttons, cell phones, keys of any kind, books, records, CDs, clothing, sports equipment, kitchen items (dishes, utensils, pots and pans), domestic furnishings (curtains, blankets, sheets, etc), and musical instruments.
The list will be updated as further arrangements are made.
Sorry, no paint, no hazard waste, no propane tanks and no light bulbs will be collected this year. Electronics collection does not include smoke detectors or appliances of any kind.
Paper shredding (limit of 3 bank boxes or paper bags) on site will take place. Cash donations will also be accepted for the End Polio Now global effort in which the Woodridge Rotary Club participates.
