Special Recycling Event Set for November 3
The Lewisville Recycling Committee (LRC) will host a special recycling collection event from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 3 at Shallowford Square on David McKee Street.
LRC collects clean items not included in the bi-weekly recycling. Go to the Town of Lewisville website https://www.lewisvillenc.net/solid-waste-recycling to find the list of accepted and unaccepted items. This event offers the residents a proper way to recycle items not permitted in the regular curbside recycle collection.
Town Office Manager Stacy Howard said the special recycling events are vital to assist the residents in properly disposing of materials.
“People often call Town Hall inquiring about recycling procedures for styrofoam peanuts and bubble wrap as well as other items that are not accepted curbside,” Howard said. “This recycling event offers the opportunity for these items to be properly recycled.”
RECYCLING ITEMS ACCEPTED WILL INCLUDE:
Plastic and paper grocery bags, styrofoam peanuts and bubble wrap, styrofoam egg cartons, inkjet and laser cartridges, cell phones, plastic six-pack rings, household batteries (only NiCad, mercury, lead and lithium), residential fluorescent bulbs, empty propane tanks, corks, #1 non-small neck plastic containers like cool whip tubs and lids, #5 plastic food containers (like yogurt), and automobile batteries.
No items that are already permitted in the curbside recycling program such as cardboard and newspaper, no used motor oil, latex paint or antifreeze. All chemicals, paints, televisions and hazardous waste must be taken to the 3RC Envirostation in Winston-Salem, no glass or other plastics not accepted curbside, no toys, housewares or small appliances.
