Hazelwood Hosting an Electronics Waste Recycling Drive at St. Louis Outlet Mall Saturday
Local residents are encouraged to get plugged into the national celebration of American recycling by bringing their unwanted electronics to this event.
Do a final swoop of the house before Christmas and get rid of that old junk cluttering your closets.
The City of Hazelwood's Green Committee, along with the Hazelwood School District and Allied Waste, is hosting a community Recycle Day at St. Louis Outlet Mall Saturday. Hours are from 8 a.m. to Noon.
The event will take place on the parking lot in front of IceZone. There is no charge to drop-off items.
Hazelwood's event coincides with the Keep America Beautiful’s America Recycles Day, which is held annually on November 15, and celebrates the benefits of recycling.
Items to Bring
Anything with a power cord or battery will be accepted.
This includes: computers; monitors; printers; TVs; VCR/DVD players; stereos/boom boxes; MP3 players; cellular phones; small kitchenware like toasters, blenders, food processors and microwaves; major appliances like refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, and dishwashers; air conditioners; humidifiers; electric shavers; and toys just to name a few.
“This is a perfect time to clean house right before the holidays so you can have more room to entertain family and friends, decorate the house and put up new electronics received as holiday gifts,” said Ron Darling, chairman of Hazelwood’s Green Committee.
For the past two years, Allied has partnered with the City of Hazelwood on two major “Recycling Day” events at St. Louis Outlet Mall as part of its annual Community Clean-Up Campaign. In 2011, the event collected 79.5 tons of recyclable materials dropped off by 616 vehicles.
