Bring your E-Waste to the Super Bowl LIII Recycling Rally, sponsored by Verizon, and help with the “greening of Super Bowl LIII” and the preservation of animal habitats threatened by the mining of minerals used in electronics.

The Recycling Rally is open to the public and free of charge. Local residents may drop off all types of electronic waste to be recycled responsibly and kept out of local landfills. As a thank you, the first 250 families bringing in items will receive a gift bag, and all who drop off items will receive a discount on Zoo admission. The Recycling Rally takes place outside the Zoo entrance; admission to the Zoo is not required to participate. Simply drive up and volunteers will be ready to help unload.
