Thank you to everyone who helped make our 2015 spring event a success! We managed to collect 2880.5 lbs of goods for Goodwill,  ​31,286 lbs of electronics and​​​ 2,700 lbs of shredding​​​! Thanks for your support and donations.

You have the opportunity to join the Zoo in a mass recycling effort held twice a year! At Power Recycling Weekend presented by Ingram Micro, you can get rid of all your clutter and help the environment, too! Just drop off your old electronics, phone books, cardboard, and paper ready for shredding in the Zoo parking lot at our next Power Recycling Weekend in April​. Our recycling partners will take it from there. 

Hours are 9am-3pm, plus shredding from 10am-2pm. ​ In addition to doing good, you will receive a discount coupon for $2.00 off Zoo admission, valid through June 30.
