iRecycle: Aluminum Cans and Plastic Bottles to Be Recycled During Liberation Day Parade; Volunteers Needed

Guam – (July 19) – The  i*Recycle and the Mayors Council of Guam, today announced the plans to encourage the recycling of aluminum cans and plastic bottles during the 70th Liberation Day Parade on Monday.
Families attending the parade are encouraged to bring their chicken wire recycling bins from past years or regular recycling bins from home. Recycling bins made of chicken wire will be given out on the morning of the parade. Supplies are limited and will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis. There will also be stationary recycling bins near the grand stand.
Volunteers are needed to help collect cans and plastic bottles along the parade route throughout the day.  Volunteers should check in at the recycling tent near the Staywell building at the halfway point of the parade route any time between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.. Nonprofit groups with the most volunteer hours will receive a cash prize.
“Everyone can do their part on Monday and help keep aluminum cans and plastic bottles out of the landfill,” said iRecycle Program Administrator Peggy Denney. “Volunteers are a key part to helping make the Liberation Day Parade a zero waste event. .”
Volunteers can assist for any length of time, but for the hours to count toward a nonprofit group the volunteer must sign out at the i*Recycle tent near the Staywell building. Volunteers should bring sunscreen and a water bottle.
Recycling at the Liberation Day Parade this year is being supported by numerous partners including i*Recycle, the Mayors Council of Guam, the Guam Chamber of Commerce, Payless Supermarkets, Guahan Waste Control and the Boy Scouts.
