In celebration of American Recycles Day, several lndianapolis organizations are joining forces to provide local residents with a chance to recycle. On November 15, local recycling service RecycleForce will host a general recycling drive at the City Market from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. On Saturday, November 19, the effort continues with an electronic waste collection drive at the Indy Winter Farmers Market (IWFM) between 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
This week's recycling events are a celebration of the recent partnership between RecycleForce and the IWFM. RecycleForce has been providing collection points for glass, cans and paper during IWFM's monthly gatherings. This winter marks the farmers market's fourth season at the City Market. Twenty new collection points have been set up in the City Market space, thanks to a recent grant from the Indiana Recycling Coalition.
Aside from providing recycling services, RecycleForce also conducts workforce training programs for ex-convicts in the Indianapolis area.
