Henderson Shine event looks to reuse and recycle

The city of Henderson will be cleaning up this Saturday at special event to recycle, reduce and renew.

The Henderson Shines effort will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Henderson Pavilion, 200 S. Green Valley Pkwy. During those hours, people can bring in old household items and electronics.

People are encouraged to bring in old batteries, paint, fluorescent lights, cell phones and electronics. All of those items are made with potentially toxic chemicals like lead, nickel, cadmium and mercury. If they not disposed of properly. they can pose a hazard.

The Henderson Shines is a safe way to dispose of the items and ensures any data left on old electronics will not fall into the wrong hands.

Some of the old cell phones received are reused by the Henderson Police Department. The smart cards are wiped clean. The phones are then given to people who may need to reach 911 fast, like victims of domestic violence.

During last year's event, more than two truck loads of donated household items went to Opportunity Village.
