BEATRICE – November 15th is America Recycles Day. It is also during the All Metals Recycling event in Beatrice. This event is sponsored by Keep Nebraska Beautiful and all the money made from the metal will go directly back into the community. Keep Beatrice Beautiful Director Linda Grell says the event is a great way for people to be able to clean up before the holidays and allows improvements to the city.
The event started on November 1st and has already collected over 30,000 pounds of metal. The Sanitary Garbage Company has dumped their bin once. These bins hold seven ton and when it was dumped Manager Deb Bell says it was over flowing. Their goal is to reach 100,000 pounds before the end of the event
A variety of things have been dropped off from pipes, to mattress springs, to fire proof safes. Dropping off items can be done at the Sanitary Garbage Company at 917 South 11th Street. The event started November 1st and will end November 19th.
