Join our recycling celebration. Explore repurposed creations made by local artists and try your hand at making your own. Play games, meet community recycling representatives, and take home free goodies.

This year’s event showcases where you can take electronic items to be recycled and why. The following small electronic items will be accepted at the event: holiday string lights, compact fluorescent light bulbs, cell phones and batteries.

Make your own creation from reused or repurposed materials at home before the event, and enter to win an award in the third annual Creative Reuse Competition. Visit www.urbanaparks.org/programs/nature-programs/ by October 15 for competition rules and a complete list of recyclable items that can be dropped off during the event. Call 217- 384-4062 for more information.
