City of Springfield Environmental Services is celebrating America Recycles Day, Thursday, Nov. 15, by thanking the community for recycling and supporting sustainable solid waste management in Springfield with free coffee, doughnuts and prizes.
Coffee and doughnuts will be available 8 a.m-5 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Lone Pine Recycling Center (3020 S. Lone Pine Ave.), Franklin Avenue Recycling Center (731 N. Franklin Ave. ) and Yardwaste Recycling Center (3790 S. Farm Road 119, Brookline).
Recyclers can pick up new “I recycle @” stickers to feature on their car or recycling bins. Recyclers will also have the opportunity to win special giveaway items such as T-shirts, bins and mulch coupons.
A special “rally hour” will be held 11 a.m.- noon at Franklin Avenue; 1-2 p.m. at Lone Pine; and 3-4 p.m. at the Yardwaste Recycling Center. Rally hours will feature increased volunteer cheering sections and potential “celebrity recyclers.”
America Recycles Day, a program of Keep America Beautiful, is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Every year on or around Nov. 15 (America Recycles Day), local events are held throughout the country to celebrate and learn more about recycling programs.
