Recycling Results

The “mega recycling event” conducted on Nov. 19 at Illinois Wesleyan, targeting non-traditional recyclables in conjunction with America Recycles Day and co-sponsored by IWU Wellness, the Ecology Action Center and Home Sweet Home Ministries, drew 302 cars of participants during the five-hour event.

The collected tally was 34 pallet loads of electronics, eight pallet loads of clothing and textiles, and three pallet loads of miscellaneous small appliances, in addition to batteries, compact fluorescent bulbs and plastic garden pots.

If you missed the event, items can be recycled throughout the year at various locations.
