Urbana Park District hosting America Recycles Day on November 14th

On Saturday the 14th, from 11:00 to 3:00, the Urbana Park District will be hosting their version of America Recycles Day at  the Anita Purves Nature Center.

Patrons will be welcome to create something from recycled material and submit it to the R2euse Competition, butif you’re not in the crafting mood, come to see all sorts of creations made from recycled material and made by local artists. There will also be recycling themed games.

If you’d like to donate some recycled material, here’s what’s best:

  • Winter coats, gloves, hats, and scarves
  • Household batteries (single use and rechargeable, and small)
  • Cell phones
  • Ink cartridges
  • Mercury thermostats (in a sealed bag!)
  • 6-pack rings
  • Capri Sun packages.
