The CITY OF HARKER HEIGHTS is hosting an America Recycles Day Pledge Drive on Thursday, November 15, 2012 at Batteries Plus in Harker Heights (360 W. Central Texas Expressway) from 3pm-6pm. Residents can come out to pledge to recycle, learn how and what to recycle and play games and win prizes! Attached is a press release, flier, and how to pledge.
In conjunction with America Recycles Day –Pledge Drive there will be a cellphone drive for “Cell Phones for Soldiers”. For each cell phone donated at $5 value “Cell Phones for Soldiers” will provide two and a half hours of free talk time to deployed soldiers. The military landscape is ever changing and as many as 369,000 troops are serving in the U.S. military overseas around the world. By donating to “Cell Phones for Soldiers”, residents can provide troops with that precious connection to loved ones back home.
When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources, if you have waste the you want to get rid of, it would be great to hire the rubbish removal from junk hunters so that you can give your disposal a good use. If used materials are not recycled, new products are made by extracting fresh, raw material from the Earth, through mining and forestry. Recycling helps conserve important raw materials and protects natural habitats for the future. Dumposaurus Dumpsters & Rolloff Rental provides a best dumpsters services.
Recycling reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging), refining and processing raw materials all of which create substantial air and water pollution. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change. Current UK recycling is estimated to save more than 18 million tonnes of CO2 a year – the equivalent to taking 5 million cars off the road.
