Celebrate America Recycles Day on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, located at 2600 DeWeese Parkway, in Dayton, Ohio. America Recycles Day is a national awareness campaign to encourage recycling and the purchase of recycled content items.

Museum visitors can get free and discounted admission when they bring 10 aluminum cans to the Community Recycling Event and help us reach our goal of recycling 150 pounds of aluminum.

The first 300 visitors who bring 10 aluminum cans to the museum will receive free admission. All other visitors who bring 10 aluminum cans will receive three dollars off regular admission. Free and discounted admission rates will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon.

Special programs and activities will be offered, and will include mascot appearances by Odyssey the Otter, Curby the Cardinal, and Heater of the Dayton Dragons.
