The county is hosting its annual “America Recycles Day” this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m in the West Town Mall parking lot just off Morrell Road.
According to the latest spin job issued by the county, folks can speak to “more than a dozen environmental organizations about where, how and why to recycle.” (Hippie talk, in other words.) The event also will have some free stuff, games, activities, blah, blah.
Additionally, if you want to lug your old or unwanted documents down to the parking lot, then Goodwill Industries of Knoxville will shred them “confidentially” for free. Also, representatives from the TVA Credit Union will be there to provide free info on how long you should keep all your old documents.
And, if you really want to get rid of your old pills, the Knoxville Police Department is hosting a medication collection (seriously). And there's a “recycling bin giveaway” (Oh, boy).
OK, in all seriousness, I know I make fun of the hippies, but you really should recycle and hug trees and all that.
