The Metropolitan Environmental Trust is hosting a Tire and Ewaste Collection Event on Saturday, October 6th, 2018. The event will be held at Plaza Santa Cecilia (2160 S Garnett Road) from 9:00 am to Noon. This is a mostly free event for citizens of the Met member communities. The only items items that incur a fee are televisions and CRT computer monitors.
Tires and E-waste should not go into the trash or to a landfill, they should be recycled. Tires attract mosquitoes and other disease carrying pests while e-waste has potentially harmful materials to the environment. This is a great opportunity for students looking to volunteer at an environmental event. This event helps divert from the landfills and for materials to be reused instead of using new materials.
We are accepting up to 8 volunteers. Please contact us about volunteering by October 3rd.
