LAS VEGAS - Saturday is 8 News NOW's second annual Super Saturday Recycle event. The event takes place at the Thomas and Mack Center from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Last year's turnout was fantastic, and interest for this year's event is also high. Organizers promise it will be bigger and better than last year.
Last year, All-Green Electronics Recycling collected approximately 900 televisions, more than 800 computers and laptops, nearly 200 cell phones and crushed hundreds of hard drives. Cintas estimated between 75,000 to 100,000 pounds of paper was shredded. That's a lot of waste kept out of the landfill.
This year's event will start earlier and make room for more cars to help move things along faster.
Vehicles will enter the main parking lot at Thomas and Mack Center from Swenson Street via Tropicana Avenue.
Vehicles will be directed into the north lot where people can mingle with 8 News NOW personalities, get their RC Willey gift cards and other goodies. They will then be directed to the south lot.
First, you can drop off batteries, if you have some, with Nevada Battery Supply & Recycling. Then, volunteers will direct you to the lanes for electronics, shredding or both. Workers will take your $15 per television, monitor and/or hard drive you wish to recycle. They accept cash, credit or debit cards. Recycling for all other items is free.
We're accepting any electronics that plug in or use batteries. Please check the list of batteries that are being accepted and limit your shredding to something manageable such as a few boxes.
After you've dropped off your items, you can exit to the left or turn right, park and have some Papa John's Pizza or Grouchy John's Coffee. There you can chat with the Lotus Broadcasting radio teams, which include KOMP and The Point. You do have to pay for the pizza and coffee.
