Recycle today for a better tomorrow.
At least, that's the intent behind the America Recycles Day Celebration that will be hosted by Advanced Green Solutions of Walnutport over a two-day period.
The business will host an America Recyles Day at its facility, located at 40 Third Street, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 19.
A computer, electronics, and universal waste recycling facility, the company will join thousands of local organizers who plan to hold recycling events across the country to celebrate America Recycles Day, the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States.
It will hold a raffle for a gift basket give away, and will accept the following items for free: desktops; laptops; LCD monitors; keyboards; mice; printers; fax machines; stereos; speaker telephones; cell phones; DVD players, VCR's; UPS battery backups; microwaves; small appliances; gaming systems; and bundled cardboard.
"We are very proud supporters of Advanced Green Solutions America Recycles Day event and commend their efforts to promote recycling in Walnutport. Recycling is the easiest thing we can do to save energy, conserve natural resources and create green jobs.
Collectively, through ever these, we aim to make recycling bigger and better 365 days a year," said Brenda Pulley, Vice President of Recycling Programs at Keep America Beautiful and national program manager for America Recycles Day.
The purpose of America Recycles Day is to promote the social, environmental and economic benefits for recycling, and to encourage more people to join the movement to create a better natural environment.
