Recycling event will be held at Water Tower May 10

Catholic Charities, the Habitat ReStore and more than a half dozen other partners will  hold a “One-Stop Drop” recycling event May 10.

The collection site is the Louisville Water Co.’s Water Tower Park at 3005 River Road, and items will be collected from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Christopher Clements, community resource developer for Catholic Charities, said the agency always benefits from these cooperative recycling events.

“Our agency will benefit from furniture, housewares and clothing that people will drop off,” he said. “It really is a community outreach where several agencies cooperate to help a lot of people.”

Among the items that can be recycled at this event are electronic devices such as cell phones, computers and monitors.

Clothing of all types is needed — including new and used, even worn out, shoes; shirts, pants, clothing of any kind that can be used by Catholic Charities clients. Those same clients also benefit from the donation or recycling of household items such as household furniture (no mattresses, please).

Televisions and household and handheld electronics, together with car, boat, cell phone and cordless-tool batteries will be accepted. But no printers will be taken at this event.

Donors are asked not to bring plastic bags, but personal documents can be shredded on site and household building supplies will be taken, as long as they don’t include paints, solvents or oils.
