On April 28th, Lincoln Earth Day, NRC held a collection of hard to recycle materials on Nebraska Innovation Campus, and here are the results of that day! 4 vendors, 16 volunteers, 2,480 lbs of shredded paper, 70 lbs of batteries, 510 lbs of clothing and household goods, and 10,200 lbs of electronics for a total of 13,260 pounds recycled! We are so thankful for the many people and organizations that helped make this event possible (Nebraska Innovation Campus, The Mill Coffee & Bistro, Super Saver, Nebraska Recycles, Lincoln Goodwill, Shredding Solutions, Interstate All Battery Center, Allo, and students from Southeast). And for those of you who brought your items to be reused and recycled – you’re amazing!
To maximize the economic and environmental benefits of resource recovery in Nebraska.
