What Can I Recycle at Reinstein Woods?
If you attended Winter Wonderland, you may have seen the Coalition of Positively Charged People‘s unique battery chute that was helping folks recycle alkaline (normal household) batteries. While Reinstein Woods is no longer accepting alkaline batteries, we do accept the following materials for recycling:
- rechargeable batteries
- sneakers in usable condition
- clean, empty skin care, hair care and cosmetic containers that otherwise wouldn’t be able to be recycled
- toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, floss and deodorant containers through Tom’s of Maine and Terracycle
- PERFECT #6 styrofoam (the kind electronics come wrapped in- must be in perfect condition)
- Cell Phones (for Soldiers)
You can bring these items to the “recycling station” inside the Education Center Monday through Friday 9 am to 4:30 pm and Saturdays from 1 pm to 4:30 pm.
Additionally, you can bring used clothing and blankets any time and place them in the Hearts for the Homeless bin in the main parking lot. Clothing doesn’t have to be in perfect condition (items can be sold to markets for industrial rags, for instance) but should be clean and dry.
