August 30, 2013 

Reducing, reusing and recycling can be easily incorporated into all aspects of our life from home to everyday activities. You can learn how to live more sustainably at the City’s “Green on Green” environmentally focused event from 10 a.m. to noon on Sept. 7, on Third and Green streets in downtown Lee’s Summit.

The event is free and will provide an opportunity to recycle several items:

• Paper shredding: Bring up to four paper grocery sacks of sensitive documents (tax records, statement etc.) only for shredding.

• Bicycle Recycling: Bring your old, broken, or unwanted bikes to be repaired and given to others in need

• Athletic Shoe Recycling: Bring no longer needed and worn out sneakers to recycle into other materials.

Other items for Recycling: keys, license plates and small rechargeable batteries

The recommended event parking is Arnold Hall parking lot, 123 SE Third St.

In addition to recycling opportunities, several local and regional “green” exhibitors will be present at the event, including Cartridge World; City Scrap Metal; City of Lee’s Summit’s Environmental Programs and Fleet Division; Green CAT Services, Green Vet; Habitat for Humanity; the Missouri Department of Conservation; Tall Oak Productions; and Town and Country Disposal.

The “Green on Green” event is a city initiative and was created as a result of one of the goals of the Lee’s Summit 360: Charting Tomorrow strategic plan.
