TxDOT Green is taking part in Texas Recycles Day on Tuesday, Nov. 15, a statewide campaign aimed towards education and awareness about the benefits of waste reduction and recycling.
The Amarillo District will participate in “upcycling” or “recycling” with Goodwill Industries between 10 a.m. and Noon. Bring your items to the Amarillo District office located at 5715 Canyon Drive.
Goodwill Industries accepts just about anything that can be recycled including clothes, appliances, furniture, etc. A 24-foot box truck will be onsite and it will have a lift to help load heavy items.
Mattresses, broken furniture, paint and batteries will not be accepted.
For more information, call TxDOT Public Information Officer Sonja Gross at (806) 356-3256.
