CANCELED: April 25th – Lincoln Earth Day Collection

UPDATE:

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, our CHaRM event has been canceled. We look forward to seeing you next year on April 24th!

Bring your electronics, rechargeable batteries, scrap metal, EPS foam (rigid Styrofoam), clothing, textiles, household goods, and documents for shredding! Nebraska Recycling Council is hosting its 3rd annual CHaRM event on Saturday, April 25th at Nebraska Innovation Campus, in the parking lot just north of The Mill. There is a $10 suggested donation to benefit the Nebraska Recycling Council and a fee for recycling TVs, but otherwise the collection is FREE. Volunteers will unload your car for you!
