About the event

This free event for the whole family will provide information and activities to help residents learn about the small steps they can take at home, work and in the community to improve our environment and make Buffalo Grove a greener and healthier place to live.

Some of the items being collected for recycling and repurposing include books, bicycles and  bicycle parts, small working appliances, eyeglasses, hearing aids, keys, vases, pots and pans, flatware, dishes, gently used towels and linens (no cushions, pillows or rugs), used crayons, all types of footwear (please tie pairs together with laces, rubber bands or zip-ties – no rollerblades or ice skates), stuffed animals, dolls and toys, (no other toys), new, gently used or worn clothing (all sizes, fabrics, types – includes pet clothing and costumes, all clean and bagged), belts, scarves, hats, purses, duffle bags, and backpacks, any condition vinyl records, commercial CDs and DVDs in their cases (no cassette tapes), ink cartridges, cell phones and hearing aid batteries.

Please note: No lightbulbs or batteries besides hearing aid batteries.

Please save your plastic bread tags to be recycled (not the wire ties). The funds raised from that program will help provide wheelchairs for those in need. For a complete list of exhibits, activities and collection items, visit Check their site for a growing list of items being collected.

Greener Good will be there with creative reuse activities and information plus take-and-make kits. Hope to see you there!
