Nevada Public Radio Recycling Day

Recycling Day

Saturday April 26

Thank you to everyone who came out for our 6th recycle event. In our role of making this community a better place to live, it is a slam-dunk for us to connect our audience with partners who can provide needed services that make this community more livable for all of us. We welcomed about 525 cars and were proud to have 4 participating sponsors this year, including Shred-it, Republic Services, The Blind Center of Nevada and Goodwill of Southern Nevada. Our partners served every car with items to recycle! Thank you for helping to keep this community ‘green’.
