America Recycles Day/SWAP Event 2017

It’s almost here!  Our America Recycles Day event is this Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 9 am to 1 pm at the Abingdon Police Station Parking lot.

FREE e-waste and document shredding onsite.  We are also taking donations to help out our local animal shelter.  Donations accepted are pet food, treats, dawn detergent, laundry detergent, bleach, blankets, towels, cat litter and toys.  Another donation we are collecting is gently used shoes for our friends at Keep SWVA Beautiful.

This year we have added something new.  The SWAP event.  The Washington County Virginia Timebank (WCOVA Timebank) is sponsoring a Tools, Electronics & Pet Supplies SWAP.

The idea behind the SWAP is simple:  “bring something, take something”.  Items should include:  tools (small hand or power tools & accessories); small home electronics and clean, gently used pet supplies.

When you make a donation, be sure to register for one of several prizes to be given away!

We hope to see you there!
