Recycling Day
Big Thicket Messenger - November 2007

Shred It, a Houston based recycling company, is the latest addition to the City of Liberty’s Recycling Day set for Saturday, November 17, 2007, from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon, on the parking lot behind the Liberty Center.

Shred It will accept private documents, expired credit cards, compact discs, and floppy discs. They will not accept hard drives. Acceptable items will be shredded on site and hauled away for recycling.  Shred It’s participation in the event will provide citizens an opportunity to properly dispose of unwanted but sensitive materials not suitable for traditional disposal.

Other items that will be accepted for recycling are paper, catalogs, newspapers, magazines, junk mail, school and office papers, aluminum cans, bi-metal (food) cans, and plastic bottles (clear, white, colored, #1 & #2). Volunteers will be present to assist in handling the recyclables.

Featured at the event will be the winners of the Liberty Elementary School’s fourth grade poster contest titled, “Why Recycle?” and Liberty Middle School’s “Recycled Art” contest. Also, participants will receive recycling bags filled with educational materials promoting recycling. Exhibitors will provide information on their services and how they contribute to the recycling effort.

Sponsors are being sought to help provide financial support for the event. For a $100 contribution, sponsors will receive recognition and signage posted on the grounds of the Liberty Center the day of the event. Persons or businesses interested in becoming a sponsor should contact Liberty Center at (936) 336-3684. Volunteers are also needed.

Diane Huddleston, councilperson, is chairing the Steering Committee for this event.
