On Saturday, we hosted our fourth regional Easy As One collection event in Tallahassee at the Governor’s Square Mall. At the event, two tons of paper were shredded and recycled by Shred-It; more than 3,000 retail plastic bags were collected and recycled; and 146 used cell phones and 135 chargers were collected to be donated to the Big Bend Victim Assistance Coalition. Despite the heat and humidity, the turn out was very impressive and is a testament to how much Floridians value their environment.

For those who were unable to attend the event, many retail grocery stores have implemented plastic bag recycling programs to make recycling easy for their shoppers. To find a plastic bag recycling location, go to http://www.abagslife.com. Visit http://www.Earth911.com for information on recycling paper and many other items such as computer monitors, toner cartridges and televisions.
