Recycling, used clothing drive to be held in conjunction with The Big Event this weekend

April 5, 2010

The Big Event groupNorthwestern Oklahoma State University’s environmentally friendly group Conserving Our Ranger Environment (CORE) is holding a recycling drive on Saturday, April 10, during “The Big Event,” from 9 a.m. to noon.

The group will collect aluminum cans and used clothing. CORE will recycle the aluminum cans to help raise funds for next year’s “Big Event.” Used clothing will be given to New Beginnings Domestic Crisis Center. They will keep the clothes they need and recycle the rest as a fund raiser for the Center. The Center receives two cents for each pound of clothing they receive and can’t use.

Trucks will be located on the square for individuals to drop off recycled materials.

“The Big Event” will begin at 8:30 a.m. This is a way for Northwestern students, faculty and staff to say thank you to the communities in which it serves.

“The Big Event” is a nationally recognized function with the purpose to strengthen the relationship between the university and the communities it serves while creating positive change.
