Recycle

In 1991, Nevada passed legislation to incorporate a 25% recycling goal. This means that with everything we throw away, we want 25% of that material to be diverted away from the landfill. Nevada Recycles coordinates and administers education programs, events, presentations and various other activities to engage the community to recycle more and generate less waste.

Annually held the first Sunday after Halloween. Picture taken by: Wayne Liechty
