Nebraska Recycling Council to Host Earth Day Collection Event
Nebraska Recycling Council (NRC) (www.nrcne.org) is hosting a “Collection Event for Hard to Recycle Materials” (CHaRM) at Nebraska Innovation Campus on Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. to noon in cooperation with Lincoln Earth Day. Electronics, document shredding, batteries, and clothing will be collected for a $10 donation per vehicle to raise funds for NRC. Volunteers will be on hand to unload cars, and The Mill Coffee & Bistro will provide wooden nickels for free coffee.
Nebraska Recycles will collect electronics (no CRT monitors or TVs), Interstate All Battery Center will collect rechargeable batteries (only), Shredding Solutions will provide document shredding (limit 10 boxes), and Goodwill will collect clothing. Information on where to take prescription drugs, household hazardous waste, CRT monitors and more will be provided.
Vehicles will enter Nebraska Innovation Campus from Salt Creek Roadway at the far east entrance (near the 27th Street overpass). Nebraska Innovation Campus and The Mill Coffee & Bistro are sponsors of the CHaRM event.
