Darling Amalgamated Retail Emporium Presents: Community Recycling Weekends
Darling Amalgamated Retail Emporium Has Been Partnering With TerraCycle® Since Day 1
What is TerraCycle®?
TerraCycle® is a social enterprise focusing on Eliminating the Idea of Waste®. In 20 countries, they’ve been tackling the issue from many angles and have found that everything we touch can be recycled. They collect typically non-recyclable items through national, first-of-their-kind recycling platforms.
Leading companies work with TerraCycle® to take hard-to-recycle materials from their programs, such as ocean plastic, and turn them into new products. With your help, they’ve diverted millions of pounds of valuable resources from landfills all over the world, and they’re just getting started!
Darling Amalgamated Retail Emporium has been collecting some of these hard-to-recycle materials, on a small scale, since we opened in July 2018. Starting September 14, 2019, and every two weeks thereafter, DARE will have collection bins in front of the store from noon-4pm Saturday & Sunday.
Although reuse is always best, we are committed to helping our community keep waste out of landfills by collecting some of these traditionally hard-to-recycle items to have them made into something new! Below you can find the types of items DARE collects for recycling through the TerraCycle® Program, and the list of collection dates through the end of 2019. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
Let’s do this! Together!
