Is your household running over with plastics, tin cans, cardboard, and such? Mine is!

This Saturday is the day to get rid of it all. Ouachita Green is conducting its Fall Recycling Day at the Monroe Civic Center, 401 Lea Joyner Expressway, Monroe, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

The list of recyclables that will be accepted is long; in addition to those items mentioned above, this is also an opportunity to get rid of outdated electronics–everything from that worthless old cell phone to the monster TV that’s been sitting in a corner of the garage for years! Even tires (up to 5 per househole) and household appliances will be accepted.

A few things won’t be: glass, styrofoam, plastic bags. Hazardous household chemicals will not be accepted this time, but keep an eye open for Ouachita Green’s spring collection of such items.

Businesses, sorry, but this day is not for you. This is a collection day for households only.

Keep your trash off our streets and highways and out of our landfills and waterways! Bring it to the Civic Center in Monroe this Saturday.
