It’s that time of year – spring has sprung which means GCC will celebrate Cool Kids 9th annual EcoFest!
Saturday, April 12th 2014
10 AM – 2 PM
Cool Kids – get your “cool card” and get a stamp at each exhibit you visit! Fill the card to get more raffle tickets for a chance to win a mountain bike!
EcoFest has some new, fun, and exciting events:
- New ways to recycle: Old bikes and parts, as well as used “nonfabric” (metal and wood ONLY) furniture for resale to benefit Habitat for Humanity. You’ll get another raffle ticket for every item you recycle.
- Door prizes: The earlier you come to EcoFest, the better your chances of winning all day during the “green grab.”
- More exhibits: Including Abbott’s Frozen Custard for sale and free yogurt samples from Muller Quaker Dairy.
- No electronic recycling this year, with hopes that it will return in 2015!
When you arrive, you can drop off your recyclables in the parking lot, as well as earn a raffle ticket for getting a free tire pressure check with Sloat Tires. Free Tree Seedlings will be given to first 250 to arrive!
When you head inside, you can recycle:
- Old Sneakers – no shoes, boots, or sandals!
- Old Paperbacks – no magazines, or hardcovers!
- Old American Flags
- Old Eyeglasses – no sunglasses!
