Recycling Program Launch in Honor of Earth Day

Wednesday, April 21, 2010
The Tompkins County Solid Waste Management Division announces that Target has launched permanent community recycling stations in all of its stores to kick-off a month-long celebration for the 40th anniversary of Earth Day this month.

The recycling stations at the front of every Target store will accept:

- Aluminum, glass, & plastic beverage containers
- Plastic shopping bags
- MP3 players
- Ink cartridges
- Cell Phones

Barbara Eckstrom, Solid Waste Manager, says, "The initiative by Target to celebrate Earth Day by focusing on recycling opportunities is supportive of the County Solid Waste Management Division goal of diverting 75% from landfills by 2015. We applaud private sector initiatives to reduce waste and encourage Tompkins County residents and businesses to participate this program."
