6 Ways To Get Ready For A Recycling Cleanup Event

Need to get rid of some junk piling up in your house? We have some upcoming cleanup events that can help you out. How convenient! But before you show up to a recycling event, here are some things to keep in mind to make sure you’re prepared.

1) Be patient and fill up your gas first!

A lot of people turn out for city cleanup events, so be prepared to wait. If you’re thinking of waiting to fill up your gas tank, don’t! Fill it up before you come to the event because your car might be running for a while as you wait in line.

2) Have a written list of what you have to recycle.

You know how you’re supposed to have a list of all your stuff ready when you donate to Goodwill? We like to do things the same way. This helps the whole process move faster.

3) Don’t cuss at us. We’re here to help you! 

This should be a joke, but it really isn’t. Believe it or not, we’ve had people cuss us out at these events. Please don’t yell at us, we’re doing our best to make your life better!

4) Recycling isn’t free.

There are exceptions, but most of the time there is a cost to recycle stuff. Review the pricing list on our website so you have an idea of the cost. Also, please bring cash or check (We don’t accept debit or credit cards).

5) We can give you options for items we don’t take.

Sometimes we can’t take certain things. It sucks, but unfortunately, it’s just the way it is. But you know what? We can help you figure out your other options! Even if we can’t recycle what you bring, we still want what’s best for Mama Earth, so we’ll point you in the right direction.

6) Read the map or signs. Don’t speed through!

We’re working staff, not targets. You’d be surprised how often people cruise through the site without regarding our safety.
