We want to celebrate National Recycling Week with a recycle event of our own. Maybe the office needs to be decluttered, the garage needs some attention, the recycle bins are overflowing. Don't worry, we are here to help! Join Nevada Public Radio on Saturday, November 16 from 8 a.m. to noon for our bi-annual recycle event in our parking lot at C-S-N (1289 S. Torrey Pines Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89146).

Got old paperwork? We'll shred it! Got magazines, aluminum cans and plastic, or appliances? We'll recycle it! Got an old computer or outdated cell phone? We'll wipe it and repurpose it - safely and securely! Need to clean out your closet to make room for new holiday clothes or have some old furniture that you don’t use anymore? Goodwill will take all your gently used clothing, furniture, toys, and more. Best of all, it's all free. With our participating sponsors Republic Services, The Blind Center of Nevada, Shred-it and new this fall Goodwill of Southern Nevada, you can declutter your home, apartment or even your desk and get the holiday season off to a "green" start, all in thanks to our presenting sponsor Subaru of Las Vegas and participating sponsors Republic Services, The Blind Center of Nevada, Shred-it and Goodwill of Southern Nevada.
