Celebrate America Recycles Day at the 3R Drive-Thru Event. This event celebrates the importance of recycling in our community and offers free opportunities to recycle items that cannot be recycled in curbside carts.

The safety of volunteers, staff and residents is the highest priority. All volunteers and staff will wear face coverings when working. Participants are required to wear a face covering while items are being removed from the car. 


Please bag or box items separately by category and place them in your trunk or back passenger side seat for safe access by volunteers.  If you have documents for shredding and food pantry donations, a volunteer will remove these from the vehicle and take them to the shred truck.

This year’s Village Recycling Challenge item is Alkaline AA, AAA, C, D, and 9V batteries. This friendly competition awards funds for scholarships to Villages with the highest participation, donated by The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N. Please label your batteries with your Village’s name or tell the volunteer when you drop off.
