Recycle Fest started in 2016 out of the need to increase the accessibility of electronics recycling within Park Forest. In the past the event has offered recycling, reuse, or disposal of the following materials: clothes, shoes, electronics, TVs, bicycles, eleglasses, prescription medicine, American flags, polystyrene (styrofoam), and #6 plastic, plastic film, and plastic bags (which aren't recyclable in your regular pickup!). We also offer paper shredding services. These 'hard to recycle' items actually have recycling streams, but they are often more difficult to find and require a little extra work to dispose of them correctly! Keep an eye on the Sustainability Calendar for the date of this year's Recyclefest.
