Natural Awakenings Indianapolis

Spring Into Recycling at the Zoo

Recognizing a vital need in our community, the Indianapolis Zoo is sponsoring a mass recycling effort in their downtown parking lot on April 9 and 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Power Recycling Weekend can jump start spring-cleaning efforts and help the environment at the same time.

The event provides an opportunity to safely dispose of electronic devices, many of which contain mercury and lead, and can harm the environment if disposed of improperly. RecycleForce will provide services to recycle a wide range of electronic items, and will ensure all computer hard drives are double-swiped clean before being destroyed.

Paper recycling will be offered compliments of Ray’s Trash Service, with a limit of three boxes of paper per car. In addition, the Zoo is partnering with Goodwill for this event, collecting gently used clothes, household items, toys and more to benefit Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana.

All participants will receive a discount coupon for $2 off Zoo admission.

$5 processing fee for TV’s and monitors. Location: 1200 W. Washington Street, Indianapolis. For more information and a complete list of acceptable items to recycle, call 317-630-2001 or visit
