Mega Recycling Event

America Recycles Day

November 17, 8am to 1pm
Illinois Wesleyan University Hansen Center Parking Lot

IWU Wellness and the Ecology Action Center want to help make recycling easier for you on America Recycles Day.  While most families recycle the usual – plastic food containers, glass bottles, newspapers, and such, what about other items? 

Well, for one day only, you can recycle `the other’ recyclables all in one place, all at the same time.

Bring us your:

·       Electronics

·       Compact fluorescent Bulbs (CFLs)

·       Household Batteries (alkaline, watch batteries, rechargeable batteries)

·       Clothes and textiles (usable or not)

·       Shoes (usable or not)

·       Plastic Garden Pots

·       Confidential Paper Shredding

Licensed recyclers will properly recycle all these items.  Please DO NOT bring any household hazardous waste items – chemicals, paints, automotive fluids, car batteries, tires, pesticides, fertilizers, etc.  These items cannot be accepted at this event but must wait for a future household hazardous waste collection event.  If you have any questions about acceptable items or household hazardous waste, please contact the Ecology Action Center at (309) 454-3169.
