Raleigh to recycle campaign signs Saturday

From staff reportsNovember 9, 2012 

— All those campaign lawn signs are of little use now, except as souvenirs. Why not recycle them?

The city will collect campaign signs at North Hills on Saturday morning, at an event organized by Keep NC Beautiful to mark America Recycles Day.

The recycling drive is for materials the city doesn’t collect at the curb, including electronics (anything with a cord), rigid plastics such as toys and lawn furniture, compact florescent light bulbs and plastic bags. There also will be shredders available to shred sensitive papers for recycling.

The city will accept plastic, polybag and paperboard campaign signs (separated, please) and metal frames, but no wooden stakes.

The recycling drive will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the corner of St. Albans Drive and Dartmouth Road, near the Harris Teeter on the east side of Six Forks Road.
