Citywide recycling event yields big collection

Posted:
KEOKUK, Ia. (WGEM) -

Several Keokuk groups are making the tri-states a little greener today.

People were told to clean out their homes and come recycle what they don't want anymore at the community-wide recycling event.

Everything from aluminum cans to computers to household hazardous waste was accepted.

Keokuk High School freshman worked the event for community service time.

Volunteers say it is a good opportunity for people to get rid of unwanted items.

"For our human environment is to maybe de clutter and to for people trying to get rid of the stuff that they have in their storage," said Keokuk Freshman Dylan Sapp. 

The group collected seven tons of paper and almost 100 T-V'S.

The groups filled two 28 foot trucks to the ceilings with e-waste as well.
