America Recycles Day Recycling Event

October 31 @ 8:00 am - December 7 @ 12:00 pm

Do you have electronic items collecting dust?

Clothes taking up room in your closet?

What about old prescriptions sitting around?

Documents that need to be shredded?

For America Recycles Day we celebrate by recycling old electronics, shredding documents, collecting gently used clothing, and disposing of no longer or expired prescriptions.

The event was started four years ago when we learned that 80% of us have electronics sitting around that we no longer use and simply do not know what to do with them. To test this theory we held the recycling event and received almost 13,000 pounds of electronics. It has continued but we partnered with Walmart, the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Department, Charlotte County Cultural Center, Waste Management, PowerHouse Recycling, and Shred It to make it a better event for our community!

Each household that visits receives a reusable car litter bag and a KCB Calendar.

Hope to see you there!
