Nevada Public Radio Hosts Free Recycling Event, 11/10
For the second time in 2012, Nevada Public Radio brings together multiple organizations that specialize in or benefit from recycling for a community-wide fall recycling event on Saturday, November 10 from 8 a.m. until noon. This event is free and open to the public.
Nevada Public Radio will hold the recycling event in their parking lot at The Donald W. Reynolds Broadcast Center on the Campus on the College of Southern Nevada (1289 S. Torrey Pines Dr., Las Vegas, NV 89146). Participating organizations and services available are:
Shred-it (http://www.shredit.com): paper shredding, document destruction and computer hard drive destruction for working and non-working hard drives. Hard drives must be removed from the computer before they will be crushed and the crushed hard drive remains will be recycled.
Blind Center of Nevada: recycling or repurposing electronics such as computers (including data erasing,) printers, appliances, mobile phones, etc.
Republic Services: recycling of commingled household and business recyclables such as plastic bottles, metals including steel and aluminum cans, cardboard, magazines, newspapers, junk mail, phone books, paper bags and glass (separation of materials is not required).
“The response to our recycling event earlier this year was tremendous – many people participated and took advantage of the opportunity to get rid of the recyclable unwanted clutter in their homes,” said Florence Rogers, President and General Manager of Nevada Public Radio. “The addition of this fall recycling event is timed to coincide with America Recycles Day, which is the Thursday following our event. We’re sure there are many more Southern Nevadans out there who want to un-clutter and we are here for them.”
