Bring items for reuse and recycling to the annual Allen Recycles Day on Saturday, Nov. 2, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of Allen City Hall, 301 Century Parkway. Examples of items being collected at this year’s event are books, eyeglasses, shoes, clothing, electronics, sports equipment, bicycles, pet supplies, and cardboard. A personal document shredding service will be on site to provide free shredding.
The event is sponsored by Keep Allen Beautiful and includes a Recycled Art Contest for local students. Recycled Art Contest entries are on display in the rotunda at City Hall this week and winners will be announced in a ceremony at 11 a.m. in the Council Chambers on event day.
