Sustainable spring cleaning just got easier! The Nebraska Recycling Council (NRC) is hosting its annual recycling day event on Saturday, April 24th from 9am – noon at the Nebraska Innovation Campus in Lincoln. NRC’s CHaRM event (a Collection for Hard to Recycle Materials) is a one-stop collection event to recycle old electronics, batteries, scrap metal, EPS foam coolers and packaging, secure documents for shredding, textiles, and to donate reusable housewares and clothing.
Most items are accepted for free except for TVs ($10-$35 fee based on size). A suggested donation of $10 per vehicle benefits the statewide work of the Nebraska Recycling Council. Visit www.nrcne.org/2021charm for a complete list of acceptable items and limitations.
To keep the recycling event safe for everyone participating, residents are asked to wear masks and to stay in their vehicles. Materials should be placed in the back seat, trunk, or bed of the vehicle for volunteers to unload. The event takes place in the parking lot northeast of The Mill at 2021 Transformation Drive, enter from Salt Creek Roadway at the far east entrance close to the 27th Street overpass.
The CHaRM Event is sponsored by Sadoff E-Recycling and Data Destruction, Goodwill of Lincoln, Interstate All Battery, Plastilite, and Shredding Solutions. Nebraska Innovation Campus and Tetrad Property Group are hosting the event location. For questions or more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
