Alhambra Recycles Event
10/24/15 8:00AM - 11:59AM
The annual 2015 Alhambra Recycles Event isn’t set to take place until Saturday, Oct. 24, but Alhambra residents are urged to start rounding up items that will be collected at the event. It will take place from 8 a.m. to noon at Granada Park, 2000 W. Hellman Ave., Alhambra.
On the list of permissible items to bring to the Alhambra Recycles Event are electronic products, plastic bottles and aluminum cans, as well as items appropriate for the Goodwill. There will also be a document-shredding service for residential customers only. No household hazardous waste (HHW) will be collected at this event. HHW should be taken to a county-sponsored collection event offered regularly at various locations throughout the Los Angeles region.
Electronic products include items such as PCs, monitors, cell phones, TVs, VCRs, etc. Proceeds from the collection of plastic bottles and aluminum cans will be donated to local non-profit organizations. Acceptable Goodwill items include clothing, rugs, curtains, artwork, lamps, CDs, DVDs, videotapes, cookware, etc.
Participants are urged to arrive early in order to receive a gift certificate for a free scoop of Fosselman’s ice cream, available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.
