In recognition of America Recycles Day, the City of San Leandro is hosting a special event on Tuesday, November 14th, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Marina Community Center, located at 15301 Wicks Boulevard. This year’s campaign theme “Be Recycled” is aimed at motivating residents to recycle 365 days per year and to reuse materials to give them a second, third or even a fourth life. America Recycles Day is a national campaign aimed at encouraging reuse, recycling and buying recycled products. The event is open to San Leandro residents only.
“Be Recycled” encourages residents to recycle pharmaceuticals, household batteries and electronic media, such as floppy disks, DVDs, CD cases and toner cartridges. Residents also may drop-off mercury-containing items including thermometers, thermostats and fluorescent lights.
America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. More than 2,000 events are held coast-to-coast, engaging more than 2 million estimated participants nationwide. For more information, please visit www.RecycleSanLeandro.org, or call the City’s Recycling Hotline at 510-577-6026.
