Waste Management, Keep Oakland Beautiful, and other sponsors send a hearty thanks to attendees young and old who came out to America Recycles Day at Waste Management’s facility in San Leandro! There were loads of fun activities for kids — including raffle prizes — as well as an opportunity for everyone to learn about where their waste goes. A highlight was the guided tour of the facility where guests could see compost decomposing before their very eyes. Everyone also took home a free bag of compost, and also had a chance to drop off e-waste, books, clothing, election signs, and hangers free of charge.
This is an annual event, stay tuned for next year.
