Celebrate America Recycles Day on Saturday, Nov. 10 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.
The first 300 people who bring 10 aluminum cans to the museum will receive free admission and a Recycling Rocks T-shirt. (Offer available while supplies last.) All other visitors who bring 10 aluminum cans will receive three dollars off regular admission.
Special programs and activities will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon, and will include mascot appearances by Odyssey the Otter, Curby the Cardinal, and Heater of the Dayton Dragons. Additionally, attendees who sign a recycling pledge will be entered into a drawing for prizes made from recycled content material.
