State Senators Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) and Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) are inviting area residents to take part in a recycling fair to promote a greener environment.
The event will take place Saturday, October 12, from 9:00 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of the Illinois State University Alumni Center at 1101 N. Main in Normal.
Electronics, cell phones, hardware, flags, prescription medication, batteries, and paper will be among the items accepted for recycling. Tires, fluorescent lighting, oil, paint, cardboard, glass, or propane will not be accepted.
“Many of us have items stored away in our garages or basements with nowhere to dispose of them,” said Senator Brady. “We hope the community uses this opportunity to be responsible in the disposal of those unneeded items.”
“This event is an opportunity for our constituents to get rid of unused items in a way that is responsible and environmentally-friendly,” said Senator Barickman. “I hope everyone has a chance to come out and take advantage of the services offered at our recycling fair.”
Habitat for Humanity of McLean County, Ecology Action Center, Springfield Electric, Home Sweet Home Ministries, Neville House, the Normal Police Department, COPS/Midwest Fiber, and VFW Post #454 will be among the organizations participating in the event.
