Join us for the annual Unstash That Trash! event on September 15th from 10am-2pm.  There will be recycling collectors on-site to recycle/reuse electronics, clothing, prescription medication, household disposables (toothbrushes, toothpaste containers, solo cups) and more!  Drive through to drop off items and then stop inside for fun activities and meet with organizations around St. Louis.

This community recycling event and environmental fair offers several different recycling opportunities as well as fun, hands-on learning opportunities from local environmental organizations. The event is free and open to the public, though some fees for recycling certain items may apply.

Our partners include: The Truitt Law Firm LLC, Brightside St. Louis, Saint Louis City Recycles, St. Louis Earth Day, EarthWays Center, Entercom, St. Louis-Jefferson Solid Waste Management District and Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

This is a fun, free activity for all ages!  For updates about the event, click “Going” on the Facebook event page.
