America Recycles Day Event – Thursday, November 15

Join us for the America Recycles Day event at Junker’s Mill, 105 S Salisbury Street in historic downtown Mocksville this Thursday, November 15th from 11 am until 1 pm.  The event is being sponsored by the Mocksville Woman’s Club and the town of Mocksville.   More than a celebration, America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to the promotion of recycling programs in the United States.  One day to inform and educate.  One day to get our neighbors, friends and community leaders excited about what can be accomplished when we all work together.  One day to make recycling bigger and better – 365 days a year.  Help make recycling work in our community.

Bring your paper documents to be commercially shredded
Shredding outdated personal documents, bank statements, insurance policies, etc. helps to eliminate identity fraud and also helps our environment by recycling paper.

Not only will you become more informed, but you will lessen your clutter/collection of paper while making it reusable again.  The Mocksville Woman’s Club is a 501(C)(3) organization volunteers and your donations are tax deductible.
