Nancy Moore Park, located off Okemos Road, became home to the Meridian Recycling Committee’s tenth Recycling/Reuse event this past weekend. The event, which lasted from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, was spread out among two of the park’s parking lots. The front lot had a tent, which was for book donations, and was a place for volunteers to collect pieces of metal and bicycles, among other things. The back lot had Vintage Tech collecting all types of electronics, from computers to batteries, and was a place where people could watch their documents be shredded by Accu-Shred, according to the press release sent out in regard to the event.
