“We are so excited about this year’s event. Everyone can recycle by simply bringing in their old phones, shoes, or clothing items. The participating organizations will gladly accept these items and share some exciting facts about recycling. Our hope is that everyone who visits our Green Team Celebration will leave with a greater awareness of how easy it is to recycle and how vital it is to the future of our environment.
