Keep Your Junk Out of Landfills!
Don’t Miss Woodridge Rotary Recycling Extravaganza May 17, 2014
Saturday, May 17, from 8 a.m. to noon, the Woodridge Rotary Club and partner groups will hold the 5th Recycling Extravaganza at Cypress Cove Family Aquatic Park, 8301 Janes Ave., Woodridge. In the last four years, over 127,000 pounds of electronics and many other items have been kept out of landfills or distributed for reuse by this event.
Items to be collected: electronic items: used bicycles and their parts, American flags, shoes of all kinds, eye glasses and hearing aids, buttons, cell phones, keys of any kind, scrap metal, lead acid batteries, propane tanks, books, records, CDs, clothing, sports equipment, kitchen items (dishes, utensils, pots and pans), domestic furnishings (curtains, blankets, sheets, etc), and musical instruments.
Sorry, no household batteries, 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.
The following organizations are partnering with the Rotary for this earth-saving event: Working Bikes Cooperative, Creative Recycling, Buttons for Ethiopia, ACME Hauling, Goodwill, Interstate Batteries, SCARCE (School and Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education in Glen Ellyn), and the Woodridge Lion’s, Jaycees, and VFW Clubs.
