Saturday, Nov. 18 is America Recycles Day, and Keep Tyler Beautiful wants to make it easy for you to get involved.

From 8 a.m. to noon, they will host a community collection event at the Tyler Recycling Collection Center, 418 N. Bois D’Arc Ave. Keep Tyler Beautiful asks citizens to bring their acceptable recyclables to the collection center during this event to support and celebrate the Tyler Recycles Day.

“This event is one of my favorites,” says Leanne Robinette, Manager of Beautification. “It really shines light on what we need to recycle and why we should be recycling. Plus, we make it really easy for everyone. They just pull up and someone will come unload the recyclables from their vehicle.”

Ark-La-Tex Shredding Company and Interstate Batteries will also provide special services. Ark-La-Tex Shredding will conduct personal document shredding for individuals and businesses and a collection station for all types of batteries hosted by Interstate Batteries will be available.

Acceptable items to bring to the collection center include:
• newspapers, magazines, phonebooks
• junk mail, mixed office paper, paperback and hardback books
• #1 and #2 plastic soda and water bottles, milk jugs and detergent bottles
• cardboard of any type, aluminum cans, tin cans
• cell phones and chargers, small electronics, computers, printers
• glass bottles and jars
• metal (copper, aluminum, brass, steel)
• motor oil/hydraulic fluid, and anti-freeze
