We want your WINE CORKS!


Recycle Brevard and Viera High School Art Department are working together again in another Make Art, Not Trash! project now reusing wine corks.

We are collecting corks in our community and are very thankful for the support of various businesses that are collecting for us and serving as a drop-off location in our community.

The first place to get on board with this project was The Green Marketplace in Cocoa. Back in December when we announced the project, they agreed in collecting corks for us. They are open Fridays and Saturdays, 10am - 5pm.

This past week, Total Wine & More of Viera joined the effort and agreed in placing a collection bin in their store by the exit door where anyone can drop off their wine corks during store open hours (normally 9am - 10pm, but check their page for the official schedule).

So you starting on January 24, 2014 we have two locations where you can drop off your wine corks: in Cocoa, at The Green Marketplace (3910 N Cocoa Blvd, Cocoa, FL 32926  Phone: 321-536-1410), and in Viera, at Total Wine & More (2302 Harnett Drive - Melbourne, FL 32940 Phone: 321-637-9844). Corks will be used by Viera High School Art students.


 
Local restaurants, like Murdock's Southern Bistro in Cocoa Village, Pizza Gallery and Grill, The Melting Pot, and World of Beer in Viera  are also saving their own corks and will be donating to us.

Stay tuned for more details on this project!

If you would like to collect wine corks for us or be a collection/drop-off location, please contact us at info@RecycleBrevard.org. We appreciate your support!

Recycle Brevard!

What goes in the Recycling Carts

Brevard County Solid Wast Department has a list posted on their website of what can be placed in the recycling carts. If you are not sure, check it out.


Notice that the list includes now plastic yogurt containers and butter tubs instead of only plastic bottles. This is a step forward in recycling more types of plastic that were normally disposed of in the regular garbage.
