Bike over to the Highland Park Library on Sunday, May 15, 2016 for Highland Park’s second annual Bike/Walk Fair. From 1-3 pm there will be bike and helmet safety checks, information from local bicycle shops and environmental organizations, and even some free stuff. Bring used bikes that you no longer need to donate to Working Bikes. Stay to see the one hour Bicycle Film Fest inside the Library at 2 or 3:15. This event is free and all are welcome. Please share.
The City of Highland Park is hosting a donation drive this weekend — May 7th and 8th from 9 am to 1 pm at Hidden Creek Aqua Park. Bring over books, small household items, toys, shoes and other items (for the specifics please call 847-926-1000) to donate for reuse. Got clothing too?? Our clothing and textile bin is only a few minutes away at 1180 Half Day Road! There are many year-round Reuse-A-Shoe drop offs nearby.
If you’ve been reading this page, you know that you can bring used electronics to the Recycling Center at 1180 Half Day Road in Highland Park, or leave one large item or three small items at the curb for pick up on your first trash day of the month if you live in Highland Park. For electronics recycling to work, there must be a market for used electronics. Here’s an interesting article that makes the case for buying certain items used. Reputable retailers refurbish these items so that they work well, and you can save money buying used.
