Metro Recycling Celebrates America Recycles Day

Metro Recycling is partnering with Barnes & Noble to celebrate the 16th annual America Recycles Day. This free event will be held at Barnes & Noble in Valparaiso, IN on November 16th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We’re excited to be part of this year’s America Recycles Day,” said LaRae Dykstra, Marketing Coordinator for Metro Recycling. “We believe it is important to educate children and get them excited about recycling and the benefits it has for our planet.”
This special event will feature a reading of “The Lorax” by Mr. Abe, from The Recycling & Waste Reduction District of Porter County, a visit from Glen the Garbologist along with Metro Recycling’s Scrappy the Turtle, who will bring Metro Recycling’s recycling trivia. A scavenger hunt will be offered at 1 p.m. followed by arts and crafts projects for the kids including cardboard box projects and newspaper hats from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
America Recycles Day is just another great opportunity to learn how recycling benefits the planet and our community,” said Dykstra.
In addition to America Recycles Day, Metro Recycling focuses on increasing community awareness on the impact of recycling every day with school presentations and yard tours of their recycling facilities in Valparaiso, Griffith and Blue Island, Ill.
