Annual Henderson Shines Cleanup and Recycling Day
May 6, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
The City of Henderson is once again hosting Henderson Shines. The free annual community cleanup and recycling effort will take place on Saturday May 6 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Henderson Events Plaza and gives residents the opportunity to dispose of hazardous household materials, recycle electronics and other items, donate goods and have sensitive documents shredded.
Oil, batteries, paint and cellular phones can all be safely disposed of, along with electronic waste such as computers or printers often made of materials such as lead, nickel, cadmium and mercury that could pose a risk if mismanaged at the end of their usefulness. Henderson Shines provides a safe and secure way of discarding computers and other electronics to protect the environment, while also eliminating data left behind on the devices. Televisions and tires are not able to be accepted.
Documents that are dropped off will be securely collected and shredded. Henderson Police will also be on hand to collect and safely dispose of unwanted or expired medications. Medical needles cannot be accepted.
Gently used clothing and household items will be collected. Pet food and pet supplies can also be donated.
At last year’s event, more than 12,000 pounds of paint, oil and batteries were dropped off for safe disposal. In addition, more than 6,000 pounds of material to be shredded and 13,000 pounds of electronic waste were collected.
