Recyclepalooza 2021 is Saturday

Don’t dump it. Recycle it at Recyclepalooza 2021 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, in the parking lot of Parker Junior High, Flossmoor Road just west of Douglas Avenue.

Load up the car. This is a contactless event. Volunteers will empty items from vehicles to keep with COVID-19 safety protocols. Donors are asked to clearly mark items for recycling.

The annual event hosted by Flossmoor’s Green Commission offers a chance to recycle electronics, metals, ink/laser jets, bikes, pop can tags, used razors, eyeglasses, gently used clothing, sporting goods, American flags, LEGOs, trophies, new travel size toiletries, small household items, gently used towels and blankets, used mascara wands, plastic bread tags, half gallon and gallon glass jars with lids, used oral care products and packaging.

Old televisions will be collected for a $20 fee per TV.

For additional information, visit the village of Flossmoor website at flossmoor.org.
