City of Lancaster to Hold Free Collection Event in Recognition of America Recycles Day
In recognition of America Recycles Day, the City of Lancaster will hold a free collection event on Saturday, November 17, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at The Hangar, home of the Lancaster JetHawks, located at 45116 Valley Central Way. During the event, residents are invited to recycle electronic waste (e-waste) and paint. The nationally recognized America Recycles Day, observed on November 15, is dedicated to the promotion, education, and importance of recycling throughout the United States.
The City of Lancaster encourages all Antelope Valley residents to make the most of this free collection event in order to responsibly dispose of e-waste and labeled paint cans. Discarding these items in the household garbage bin is illegal, as well as detrimental to the environment. The City urges residents to help keep the valley healthy and clean by bringing these items in for proper disposal, which positively impacts the environment and reduces costs associated with illegal dumping clean up. This allows funds to be redirected to other community programs and activities.
