Incredible Success at the North Hamilton County Recycling Event!

We are thrilled to announce the outstanding results from our first-ever North Hamilton County Recycling Event, held on April 20th, 2024, at Soddy Lake Park, and the extended recycling event at the Sequoyah Recycling Center from April 22nd to April 27th. With your incredible support and the dedication of our partners, we have made a significant impact on our community and the environment.

During the main event, we recycled over 2,700 lbs (more than a ton) of electronics, including computers, TVs, printers, and more. We also collected 40 mattresses, 20 pairs of sneakers, 50 lbs of batteries, and 40 inkjet cartridges. The extended recycling event at the Sequoyah Recycling Center was a massive success, with an impressive 1,457 tires collected.

We extend our deepest gratitude to our partners and sponsors who made this event possible:

  • Hamilton County Recycling Department
  • Absolute Waste Management
  • Spring Back Mattress Recycling Nashville
  • Keep Tennessee Beautiful
  • Franklin E-Waste
  • Tennessee Environmental Council

Their unwavering commitment to sustainability and their generous contributions were instrumental in the success of both the main event and the extended recycling efforts.

We also want to thank each and every one of you who participated in the events and helped us create a cleaner, greener future for Soddy-Daisy. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed, and we are inspired by your dedication to our community.

As we look ahead, we are already planning an even bigger event for November. We invite you to join us as volunteers, donors, and sponsors to help us continue making a difference. Together, we can build a more sustainable future for generations to come.
