This year marks the 46th anniversary of Earth Day. To celebrate the “Go Green” holiday, Uptown businesses joined together to make neighborhood recycling an easier task. Uptown Recycling Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 23 to provide an environmentally friendly way to dispose of unwanted belongings. Located on the northeast corner of Martin Luther King Drive and Reading Road, the event will feature drop-off collections for your entire recycling list.

The following event partners will also be on site to support your recycling needs:

  • Cleanlites Recycling will collect electronics, accessories and other universal waste. The Cleanlites team will also take old batteries, but cannot accept tube-style TV’s and monitors.
  • All-Pro Shredding will take up to five boxes of confidential papers you may have laying around after tax season.
  • Hamilton County Heroin Task Force, in partnership with PreventionFIRST!, will properly dispose of any unused, unwanted or expired medication and pharmaceutical drugs.
  • St. Vincent de Paul will collect gently used, worn or torn clothing and linens.

“Uptown is our home, our workplace and where we go to have fun, so joining together to host a community recycling day benefits everyone. It reduces our negative impact on the natural environment, creates awareness and education and leads to a healthier community and healthier people,” says Katie Schneider, TriHealth’s sustainability consultant.
