Participants in the 4th Annual Diamond Bar ECO-EXPO now have one more environmentally friendly reason to clean out their closets, grab a couple of bags of free garden mulch, shred old documents and dispose of unwanted electronic equipment on Saturday November 2, 2013.
Attendees are encouraged to celebrate America Recycles Day by bringing a bag of unwanted clothes, shoes and household textiles to the South Coast AQMD Parking Lot across from City Hall between the hours of 10am and 2pm. Brightly colored ATRS Recycling bins will be stationed adjacent to the Waste Management mulch containers.
Diamond Bar residents already support the textile recycling program and many local retailers, property managers and store owner provide this easy and convenient opportunity to recycle all year round. Every pound collected in the community generates revenue to support local charity Giving Children Hope and the “We’ve Got Your Back” nutrition program in area schools.
