Join UPD in learning how to use the three Rs: recycle, reuse, reduce.

 

Rub-a-dub-dub, three Rs in the tub! How can you Recycle, Reuse and Reduce waste in the bathroom—the most overlooked room when it comes to recycling? Join us to learn what to do with boxes, bottles and containers from the bathroom. For this event only, a drop-box will be available where you can recycle toothbrushes (non-electric) and empty tubes of toothpaste (squeeze out all of the toothpaste first!).

Make your own creation from reused or repurposed materials at home before the event, and enter to win an award in the fourth annual Creative Reuse Competition. Visit www.urbanaparks.org/ programs/nature-programs/ 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.
