OC Residents score a recycling hat trick at Eco Challenge collection event

OC Waste and Recycling in partnership with the Anaheim Ducks welcomed hundreds of county residents to the Honda Center bright and early Saturday, November 4, 2017. As early as 6 a.m., cars lined up ready to score: First goal, to dispose of e-waste; second goal, to securely shred paper documents; and,   third goal, to keep reusable clothing and home goods out of the landfills. HAT TRICK!

In three short hours, more than 22,000 pounds –TEN TONS!—of recyclable materials were collected, including more than 15,000 pounds of paper for shredding and 7,800 pounds of used goods.

The early birds secured Ducks tickets and a post-game skate on Wednesday, November 15, in celebration of America Recycles Day. Residents can take the recycling pledge and find other activities at www.americareyclesday.org 

Saturday’s festivities included eco-friendly activities and prizes, from vendors including Discovery Cube, Waste Not OC, City of Anaheim Public Works, Republic Services, OC Public Libraries, OC Sanitation District and OC Mosquito and Vector Control and Enrecos.
