Do you have a collection of unused and packaged plastic utensils from your take-out meals this year? Our goal is to #cutoutcutlery and #skipthestuff when ordering take-out, but often restaurants and delivery services still include these single-use products. 

Please bring your packaged plastic utensils to the Dunn Avenue loop behind Talley Student Union on April 15. Waste Reduction and Recycling will collect your utensils and give them to food donation organizations, including Oak City Cares. When you drive up, stay in your car, and pass your utensils to our team. Walk-up donations also will be accepted.

We will accept all single-use plastic utensils, but the utensils must be in an unopened, prepackaged plastic sleeve.
