EVERYONE should recycle!

Join the El Paso Zoo in doing your part to help our community recycle. Recycling involves taking materials that would normally be discarded as waste and giving them a new life. In El Paso recyclables can be placed in special containers for curbside pickup. If you live in an area that does not offer recycling such as some apartment complexes, ask the property manager to contact Friedman Recycling (915-792-9300), the company that the City of El Paso uses for its recycling program. According to Recyling Consultants recycling can save your apartment complex money since the cost of trash disposal is actually more per year if the complex does not recycle.

Be sure to think about the Zoo when you are ready to recycle your cell phones, cell phone accessories, IPods and MP3 players, handheld game systems, GPS handheld units, laptops, e-readers and portable hard drives. These items can be dropped off at the El Paso Water Utilities Discovery Education Center near the Zoo Front Gate. Enter from the Passport Cafe side and look for the recycle box in the Internet Cafe. If you are not planning to enter the Zoo, ask a Security Officer to contact a member of the Education Team to receive your item. Funds received from recycling these electronic items support zoo conservation projects.
