Are your closets frightfully full of clutter? Garage so stuffed it's scary?

This Saturday and Sunday, join us for Power Recycling Weekend, your opportunity to de-clutter your home and help the environment, too! Just drop off ​your old electronics, phone books, paper products, household items and much more in the Zoo parking lot and our recycling partners will take it from there! A full list of all accepted items is available on our website.

RecycleForce will accept most unusable and outdated electronics, small appliances and more. Please note there is a fee for any TVs and monitors, but all other items will be accepted for free.

Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana will be on site collecting new and gently used clothes, household items, furniture, books and toys.

Paper recycling will be offered from 10am-2pm compliments of Ray's Trash Service. Limit of three boxes of paper per car.

The event is free, though there is a $10 processing fee for TVs and monitors, or $20 for TVs larger than 27 inches. In addition to doing good for the planet, you'll receive a discount coupon for $2 off Zoo admission. Participants who also plan to visit the Zoo this weekend will be asked to pay for parking.​
