The Clark County Solid Waste District will loan portable recycling containers to anyone organizing a public event or festival in Clark County. The containers are available at no charge, but must be reserved in advance, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The event organizers are responsible to pick up and return the containers, as well as to make sure the recyclables are taken to a collection station. The District maintains five stations in Clark County.

 

The containers are designed to accept aluminum cans and plastic or glass bottles. Plastic cups are generally not recyclable. The rule of thumb is that a plastic bottle with a mouth smaller than its base is recyclable. All others are not.

In addition to recycling, the containers can be adapted for use as trash or compost bins.

For information or to reserve recycling containers for your event, call the District at 521-2020.
