Keweenaw's 2nd Annual Waste Reduction Drive

Saturday, April 17, 2021 9:00am to 3:00pm

Event Details

Collection Day

How much waste can we divert from the landfill as a community in 2021?

We found even more recycling opportunities for our community!

Let's make the 2021 drive bigger and better than last year's! The drive will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 17 in MTU Parking Lot 22 (behind the SDC). The event will be set up drive-thru style to increase efficiency and minimize contact. Guidelines will be in place to protect the health of volunteers and participants.

Start Collecting These Items

  • Razors
  • Dental products
  • Plastic bottle caps and rings
  • Egg cartons
  • Plastic film
  • Foil-lined wrappers

Please refer to the Official WRD Guide for:

The SDH will post important updates for the drive over the next few weeks. Stay up to date on the drive by following their FB and IG pages.
