Atlantic County Utilities Authority To Bring National Recycling Celebration to Egg Harbor Township

ACUA will host open house on November 13 to celebrate America Recycles Day 2015

Egg Harbor Twp, NJ – On Friday, November 13, the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) will host its third annual Open House event at the ACUA Recycling Center. ACUA will be joining thousands of local organizers holding recycling events across the country to celebrate America Recycles Day, the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States.
 

The Open House at ACUA will run from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., and will feature special “behind the scenes” tours of the Recycling Center, which is operated by ReCommunity Recycling.  The Open House will also include children’s activities, including a Compressed Natural Gas collection truck for kids to check out, along with games, crafts, and photos with Supercan, ACUA’s Recycling mascot. Atlantic County guests will also have a chance to win a 95 gallon recycling cart at the Open House event.

“America Recycles Day is a great opportunity for residents of all ages to come to the ACUA Recycling Center to see learn more about how recycling works. Visiting the Recycling Center offers people a chance to see the impact of their participation in Atlantic County’s recycling program,” said Rick Dovey, ACUA President.  “When you visit the Recycling Center and see this mountain of material that is being kept out of the landfill and which will be made into new products, the importance of recycling becomes very clear,” Dovey added. “ReCommunity, our recycling partner, will be offering visitors a chance to get a closer look at how single stream recycling works with special tours of the processing area.”
