Have outdated electronics or clothing items that are still usable or in rough shape? Take them to Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, July 8, from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. for the Refuge Recycle Round Up.
Electronics items accepted include: computers/servers, keyboards and mice, monitors/displays, cell phones, storage devices/flash drives, video game consoles, printers, scanners, memory/RAM, networking hardware, stereo equipment/speakers, and projectors. But no TVs or CRT monitors.
Textile items accepted include anything made from cloth or artificial fabric like vinyl.
Nearly all textiles can be recycled, such as: Clothing (pants, jeans, skirts, dresses, suits, shorts, shirts, tees, tanks), outerwear (coats, jackets, gloves, hats, scarves), footwear (shoes, boots, heels, sneakers, sandals, socks, tights), undergarments (bras, underwear, slips, camisoles), accessories (hats, belts, ties, scarves, headbands), handbags (wallets, totes, luggage, backpacks, briefcases), linens (towels, sheets, comforters, blankets, tablecloths).
Textile items may be brought in garbage bags.
This is a fantastic opportunity to keep these items out of the landfill. Those wishing to participate may recycle their items for $10 a carload. Funds will help to support conservation efforts at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.
