THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (November 1, 2013) – Recycling goes beyond the ordinary when The Woodlands Township celebrates America Recycles Day at the 3R Bazaar on Saturday, November 9, 2013, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at 8203 Millennium Forest Drive in The Woodlands.
An opportunity for recycling unique commodities, the event will offer collection of plastic bags, alkaline batteries, plastic caps, corks, eyeglasses, clothing and block Styrofoam™. Shred-All Texas will provide secure on-site shredding of personal documents. A donation of five cans of food or $5 per bank box will benefit Interfaith Food Pantry.
“A nationwide event, America Recycles Day, started right here in our state as Texas Recycles Day. We can still be leaders by recycling more,” notes Lynne Aldrich, manager of Environmental Services for the Township. A recycling refresher, the 3R Bazaar features recycling opportunities offered throughout the community and highlights fun reuse activities.
Spotlighting its holiday line, Buy Recycled Boutique will open its doors one day only during the event. Provided in partnership with The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N., the annual trunk show features unique and trendy items made from recycled materials. From high tech to handcrafted, everything at the Buy Recycled Boutique has a story.
The 3R Bazaar is a free program of The Woodlands Township with sponsorship from The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N., Shred-All Texas, Americas Styrenics, Waste Management, The Woodlands Development Company and H-E-B.
