Recycling Events on Memorial Day Weekend


Come to the Coop this Memorial Day weekend for two recycling events:

Bag & Shoe Exchange
Saturday May 23, 10am-2pm

This exchange is a community event that is ecologically responsible and fun. Why support the consumer market and buy, when you can share items that have already been well loved? Reuse, renew, recycle.

To bring items for exchange: do not leave things in the Coop before the hours of the exchange; bring up to 15 items only; bring one item, take one item; at 1:30, you can take as many items as you want; bring gently used, clean purses, bags and shoes that you are proud to be able to exchange with a new owner. (Unchosen items will be donated to a local shelter.)

Recycle Your PCs, Macs, Smartphones
Saturday May 23, 3-6pm

This will be an ongoing series and will include a short film on recycling called Story of Stuff. Learn how to rejuvenate your computer; how to salvage parts from your computer; how to clear data from a computer for recycling. Software and hardware problems are welcome. Presentation of various computer-repair tools. We'll show you how to integrate your computer and Smartphone to get news, calendar, contacts and email all synchronized very easily. Please email info@brooklyncoop.org for more information.
