By  | 

THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (September 29, 2016) – Recycling goes beyond the ordinary when The Woodlands Township celebrates America Recycles Day at the 3R Bazaar on Saturday, November 12, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The free event takes place at The Woodlands Township Environmental Services facility at 8203 Millennium Forest Drive in The Woodlands.

“A nationwide event, America Recycles Day, started in our state as Texas Recycles Day,” noted John Geiger, manager of Environmental Services for the Township.

An opportunity for recycling unique commodities, the event will offer collection of alkaline batteries, eyeglasses, gently worn clothing and even flip flops. Attendees can also support their village by bringing old toothbrushes, empty toothpaste tubes and floss containers for the Village Challenge, the TerraCycle Oral Care Brigade®!

Secure onsite shredding of personal documents will also be offered. A donation of five cans of food or $5 per bank box will benefit Interfaith Food Pantry.

The Buy Recycled Boutique will open its doors one day only during the event to spotlight its holiday line. Provided in partnership with The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N., the annual trunk show features unique and trendy items made from recycled materials. From high tech to handcrafted, everything at the Buy Recycled Boutique has a story.

Please check collection guidelines at or contact The Woodlands Township Environmental Services Department at 281-210-3800. The 3R Bazaar is a free program of The Woodlands Township with sponsorship from The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N., Waste Management, The Woodlands Development Company and H-E-B.
