Recycling Drive: March 15th – April 12th, 2014

Volunteer Day: Saturday, April 12th, 2014 at Harlem Grown’s Urban Farm, 118 W. 134th Street

Harlem Grown is celebrating all things GREEN this upcoming April as we plant our gardens and host a BIG recycling drive for Global Youth Service Day and Earth Day! DID YOU KNOW the average American generates 4.5 pounds of waste per day and only 1.1 pounds of that waste is currently being recycled? The EPA estimates that over 75% of solid waste is recyclable but only 30% is actually recycled. We can do better!

Join our recycling drive from mid-March to mid-April to help reduce YOUR impact on the environment! Our goal is to eliminate HUNDREDS of pounds of trash from the waste stream!

Join Our Recycling Drive

It’s easy! Simply collect the hard-to-recycle items listed below at home for the next few weeks. Then, bring your items with you on Saturday, April 12th to the Volunteer Day or call us at 212-870-0113 and arrange a time to drop-off your items.

Come to the GYSD Volunteer Day!

We are hosting a volunteer day on Saturday, April 12th from 10AM to 2PM to gather all of the items we collected, sort, weigh, and package them to send to TerraCycle.

We ask all volunteers to bring at least FIVE items for our recycling drive (i.e. 5 chip bags). Volunteers can also help with garden-preparation tasks at our urban farm! Please RSVP here.
