First Annual UNLV Recycling Rebels Day
In honor of Earth Day on April 22, The Global Paint for Charity and UNLV’s Recyclin’ Rebels and its partners will host our first annual recycling event from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of the university’s Thomas & Mack Center.
The event is free and open to the public. It will allow the community to drop off Paint, traditional recycling items, electronic waste, and paper files.
Additional event partners include Global Paint for Charity, UNLV Rebel Recycling, MGM Resorts International, Blind Center of Nevada, Units Moving and Portable Storage, and the students in the Harrah College of Hospitality course on events management.
The community is invited to bring their unwanted paper, plastic bottles/tubs, cardboard, glass, and aluminum. Paint and most electronic items will also be accepted, including computer and a/v equipment, cell phones, printers, cords, and most other electronics. CRT monitors, flat screen or tube/rear projection TVs, copiers, printers, alkaline or household batteries, and lamps/bulbs will not be accepted.
Our goal is to recycle 4,000 gallons!
