You have the opportunity to join the Zoo in a mass recycling effort held twice a year! At the Power Recycling Weekend presented by BrightPoint, you can get rid of all your clutter and help the environment, too! From 9am-3pm Nov. 3 and 4, you can drop off your old electronics, phone books and paper ready for shredding in the Zoo parking lot. Our recycling partners will take it from there.
