Tuesday is America Recycles Day. And for the sixth consecutive year, the City of Jacksonville will collect recyclables at public locations.

Last year, over 19,000 pounds of paper and 500 pounds of cardboard were collected.

This year’s efforts will be staged at two locations.

Adventure Landing on Beach Boulevard will have an onsite vendor collect and shred paper from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m, with another onsite vendor collecting computer equipment.

For those in the Urban Core, the Prime Osborn Center will hold paper shredding only from noon to 5 p.m.

Jacksonville residents looking to offload “gently worn shoes, blankets, coats, towels, and sporting equipment” will have opportunities to do so at both locations. These items will benefit the Jacksonville Humane Society, Lions Club International, Teacher Supply Depot, Soles 4 Souls, BEAM, Downtown Ecumenical Services, and UNF Trail Wings.
