You have the opportunity to join the Zoo in a mass recycling effort held twice a year! At Power Recycling Weekend, you can get rid of all your clutter and help the environment too! Just drop off your old electronics, phone books, cardboard, and paper ready for shredding in the Zoo parking lot during our Power Recycling Weekend and our recycling partners will take it from there!
In addition to doing good, you’ll receive a discount coupon for $2 off Zoo admission.
Thank you to everyone who helped make our 2016 events a success! You helped us keep more than 40,300 pounds of reusable and recyclable materials out of area landfills! Thanks for your support and donations.
