America Recycles Day is Nov. 15, 2014

America Recycles Day: U-Cycle, Recycle, Bicycle!

Saturday, November 15
Anita Purves Nature Center
1505 N. Broadway, Urbana

Join the recycling celebration! Although the event will take place indoors, this year's theme focuses on bicycles! During the event, kids will have the opportunity to make some creative decorations for their bikes using repurposed items.

Make your own creation from reused or repurposed materials at home before the event, and enter to win an award in the Creative Reuse Competition. Participants of all ages and skill levels are welcome. A panel of judges will score each entry for usefulness, reused/recycled content, ability to be recycled, creativity, and complexity. See here for competition rules and a complete list of recyclable items that can be dropped off during the event. Bring in the most of any one of the recyclable items above and win a prize! Questions about the event or the competition? Contact Savannah Donovan at 217-384-4062 or

This event is always a great time. Staff from U-Cycle and the I.D.E.A. Store will also be at the event. Stop by any time from 10am to 2pm to enjoy the festivities. We look forward to seeing you there!
