On November 12, 2016, the City of Plano hosted its Texas Recycles Day event. The event provided an opportunity for residents to donate items for reuse and recycling. The event specialized in giving people a place to donate non-traditional items that don’t belong in home recycling carts. These items included bicycles, books, clothing, pet supplies and many others that will be used by charitable organizations and collection partners in their daily operations. Plano’s Texas Recycles Day once again provided a vivid example that recycling not only helps the environment, but has social benefits in our community and around the world.
