Guam – The Guam Environmental Protection Agency (Guam EPA) is partnering with the iRecycle Program to host the first Great Recycling Roundup in Guam.
The Great Recycling Roundup will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at the Agana Shopping Center extra parking lot. Residents and organizations are encouraged to bring their aluminum, plastics 1 and 2, paper, cardboard, glass, steel food cans, Mr. Browns cans, fluorescent lightbulbs, cooking oil and even used motor oil in for recycling. The items will be recycled free of charge.
“This is one of the best ways to celebrate Earth Day. Everyone has something that can be recycled at their home and this is a free and easy way to make sure those items become a resource rather than part of the waste stream,” said Administrator Eric M. Palacios. “This is a great example of government, private and nonprofit groups working together to provide a community service. This type of event can help all of us recycle more and reduce the amount headed to the landfill.”
The event was organized by iRecycle as part of Earth Day 2013 activities.
