America Recycles Day is this week and Best Buy on Oak Forest Lane will host an event in conjunction with the Solid Waste Authority on Saturday, November 17, 2012 that will offer participants the opportunity to take a pledge and win prizes.

The first fifty attendees who bring at least three recyclable goods will get a t-shirt made out of recycled material.  Others will have the opportunity to pledge their commitment to recycling and be entered to win prizes such as an iPod nano.  You can read more here.

Want to help local schools while recycling? Each year the Solid Waste Authority and WBMF sponsor the "Talkin' Trash" competition for area 4th graders.  If you're looking for recycle, you can bring your items to a local school and give them the opportunity to win technology.
