The Friends of Oleta State River Park are excited to participate with Dade Recycling in their non-profit program. Starting on Wednesday, April 22, Earth Day, a new recycling bin will be available at the Park entrance where you can dispose of your inkjet printer cartridges, toner printer cartridges, used cell phones, rechargeable batteries, and small electronic devices - such as laptops, tablets, Mp3 players, digital cameras - along with new (unused) ink and toner cartridges. By recycling these e-waste items you will help reduce the amounts of e-waste that pile up in our landfills each year, help to save energy, reduce air and water pollution and help conserve natural resources.
And for those local business who want to recycle their e-waste but are unable to come to the park, the Friends can arrange to pick up your donations. If you would like to sign up or have any questions, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
During Baynaza on Sat. April 25th, please come by the Friends tent (located at the White Ibis pavillion) to drop off your e-waste at our recycling bin. We will also let you know how to sign up your business for our pick up service and how you can become a Friends of Oleta River State Park member.
