Go green and recycle with Southwestern
Illinois College! SWIC is helping community members recycle old clothing items
and shoes, as well as unwanted electronics.
The newest opportunity to
recycle at SWIC will help people clean out those closets. The three SWIC
campuses are now home to USAgain drop boxes, which provide opportunities to
drop off clothing, shoes, gloves, hats, linens, blankets or towels for
donation. Items dropped in these bins are diverted from landfills to be
reworn, reused or recycled.
The drop boxes are located at the
Belleville Campus, 2500 Carlyle Ave., parking lot M2; the Sam Wolf Granite
City Campus, 4950 Maryville Road, north parking lot; and the Red Bud Campus,
500 W. South Fourth St., main parking lot.
SWIC will also pair up with
a new partner, RNA WorldWide, to host a free electronics recycling drop off
Sunday, Oct. 13 from 1-4 p.m. at the SWIC Belleville Campus. The drop-off zone
will be in parking lot M5. There will be an additional drop-off date Sunday,
Nov. 10 from 1-4 p.m.
Electronics such as computers, monitors, VCRs,
televisions, appliances, cameras and cellphones, as well as batteries, metal
and ink/toner cartridges, will all be accepted at the recycling drop off. For
a complete list of what can all be recycled, visit RNAworldwide.com. This
certified electronics and metal recycling company is located in Belleville.
