Community recycling event coming to UIS

Thanks to state Senator Sam McCann (R-Carlinville), local residents can come to UIS tomorrow (Saturday, September 28)  and drop off  things at a recycling fair. It runs from from 9 am to 12 noon. We are delighted to work with the senator on this project, which he has been planning for months. It will be in our Recreation and Athletic Center parking lot (see Parking Lot I). 

Items accepted: Electronics, cell phones, hardware, flags, prescription medication, batteries, and paper. Kumler United Methodist Church Outreach Ministries will also be accepting food and toiletry donations.
Not accepted at this event: Tires, fluorescent lighting, oil, paint, cardboard, glass, or propane will not be accepted.

Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County, BLH Computers, Inner City Mission, Sojurn Shelter, VFW Post #755, Rexx Battery, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and United Cerebral Palsey’s “Gone for Good” program will be among the organizations participating in the event.
