America Recycles Day is tomorrow and to celebrate, the City of Kansas City, Mo., and Jackson County are challenging its employees and residents to recycle.

Those who drop off recycling at designated locations tomorrow will receive an eco-pen and paper pad.

For the challenge, residents may recycle their paper products at a number of city facilities from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  on Thursday, Nov. 15.

A designated outdoor “drop-off” area will be set up at each participating location, allowing residents to drive up and drop off their paper. Locations include:
•City Hall – 414 E. 12th St. (pull up along 12th Street)
•Neighborhood Preservation – 4900 Swope Parkway
•Water Department – 4800 E. 63rd St. (back side of the building, north lot, by the drop box)
•Health Department – 2400 Troost Ave.

A shredder will be available at the City Hall collection site for residents wanting to recycle confidential materials.  All paper will be collected and recycled by Proshred, a paper shredding company.

Residents unable to participate in this event may also recycle their paper and other materials at the city’s three recycling drop-off centers. The centers are open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and are located at the below locations:
•Three Trails Recycling Center – 9051 Hillcrest Road
•Environmental Campus Recycling Center – 4707 Deramus Ave.
•Metro North Recycling Center – 400 N.W. Barry Road
