Ten For Ten

To help celebrate Recycle Brevard's 10th anniversary and Earth Day, we are launching the Ten for Ten Collection Challenge to involve the community in removing items from the waste stream, diverting more from our landfills as a gift to the Earth.

Join the effort! If you would like to help with this effort, please sign up online or contact our Volunteer Coordinator to sign up for a slot on the drop-off day. We hope to have great community participation and will need volunteers to assist receiving items, sorting, packing, weighing, dropping off boxes of materials. Our drop-off date is Saturday, April 24 from 9am to 2pm.

When


How
Goal: to collect at least 10 lbs of accepted materials from home or your workplace from March 22 and April 22

 1.    Get Ready
Review list of accepted items. Print the Ten for Ten label, fill it out, and set a box or bag aside to be your collection container 

2.    Collect
Start collecting accepted items. Mark on the label the type of items that you are collecting. Make sure all items are empty, clean, and dry. Collect items between March 22 and April 22.

3.   Pack Up
On April 22, weigh your collected waste and write the total weight on the label. Attach the label to the container but do NOT seal the collection container.

4.    Drop Off
Find drop-off days and sites. On drop-off day, between specified hours, take your container and filled-out label to the drop-off site of your choice. Thank you!
