Nevada Public Radio Recycling Day



Recycling Day

On November 15, a record-breaking 869 cars participated in the 7th Nevada Public Radio Recycling Day. The event successfully provided a place for the community to safely dispose of confidential materials, recycle unwanted electronics, clean out spaces and make use of large-volume commingled recycle drop-offs, as well as sharing their gently used items with others and new this year, we collected unused medication. Thank you to everyone who came out to help us keep Southern Nevada green.

Start collecting your recyclables now for our next Recycling Day on Saturday, April 25, 2015.

Here are some results from this year and previous years:
