In honor of Earth Day, the Sycamore Public Library will host their 4th Annual Reuse-Recycle Book Day on Saturday, April 20th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Sycamore Public Library’s Meeting Room.
The Reuse-Recycle Day is free and open to anyone who is looking to repurpose or recycle their items responsibly. Volunteers from NIU Cares Day will provide a curbside pick-up service to help area residents bring their boxes of items to the library. Donated materials can include books, magazines and scrapbooks, VHS tapes, DVDs, and CDs.
Volunteers will check all materials for possible reuse or recycling. Reused books may be added to the library collection for circulation. Any books or magazines that can’t be reused will be collected by International Paper, a global paper recycler, for recycling. Last year the Sycamore Library’s Recycle Day kept over 11,400 pounds of paper out of landfills. For more information, contact Katie Davis, Volunteer Coordinator at 815-895-2500 extension 33 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sycamore Library is located at 103 E. State St., in Sycamore.
Also this Saturday in Sycamore, residents may bring in old computers and other outdated electronics to the collection at the Sycamore Public Works Building, 475 N. Cross St. in Sycamore from 9-11 a.m.
