Celebrate Sustainability on November 16

November 16 will be the day to celebrate and learn a lot about sustainability, recycling, and our environment.

While we are organizing our 3rd Annual Recycle Brevard Festival that will happen from 10am to 2pm, Brevard County Parks and Recreation - Central Area is busy organizing their EcoLiving Jubilee that will be from 3pm to 7pm.

Both events will be on the same day, offering Brevard residents a whole day of educational and fun activities to enjoy with the whole family.

All exhibitors will bring loads of information to share getting you inspired to apply some (or all!) into your life and to spread what you learn around in our community.

Each event will have unique exhibitors and activities. While at the jubilee there are going to be locally sourced food trucks, at our festival, children will have a chance to participate in a toy swap and "recycle" their gently used toys.

Make sure you do not miss this opportunity. It is going to be an incredible day and we are just a month away! Mark your calendars and come celebrate with us on November 16!

For more information, you may contact us at info@RecycleBrevard.org.

Calling All Creative Recyclers!

If you know how to create new things out of reusable or recyclable materials and are between Kindergarten and 12th Grade, this is an opportunity to show what you've got!
 
Keep Brevard Beautiful in partnership with Recycle Brevard and The Reusable Resources Adventure Center is organizing a contest that is all about reusing and recycling: the Creative Recycling Contest.

The contest will accept submissions of holiday decorations, useful items, posters, and artworks.

To participate you just need to fill out and submit your registration form by November 8, get your piece ready, and bring it to our drop off location at the Viera Discovery Center on November 14 or 15.

The pieces will be judged and first, second, and third places will be on display at our event, the 3rd Annual Recycle Brevard Festival on November 16. Prizes, certificates, and ribbons will be awarded to all winners. So don't delay! Start planning your project and participate!

Successful Collection of Recycle Bins and Trash Cans


 
A BIG THANK YOU to our community members for donating their trash cans and recycle bins.

So far we have collected a total of 213 recycle bins and 51 trash cans.

And we are not done yet!




If you still have recycle bins or trash cans that you no longer need, you may drop them off at The Green Marketplace or in the lobby of Manatee Elementary School or contact us at info@RecycleBrevard.org to make arrangements.





We have delivered 16 trash cans and over 50 recycle bins to Manatee Elementary, four trash cans and 10 recycle bins to The Green Marketplace, and we still have more deliveries to make. All collected recycle bins and trash cans will be put to good use.

THANK YOU for your support!

Recycle Brevard!
