Sustainable San Marcos needs help cleaning up campaign signs

Sustainable San Marcos is organizing a campaign sign recycling program for San Marcos and the surrounding communities. Political signs usually end up in the landfill since this material is not accepted through curbside recycling or at the city’s drop off center. This year Sustainable San Marcos has partnered with Green Guy and Cycled Plastics in Austin to recycle around 2500 signs between local and national elections.We are calling for volunteers to help us at the drop off center. Signs need to be prepared for recycling, removing any stickers, metal wire and wood stakes from the plastic.

There are many time slots to fill and we are only asking you to contribute 2 hours. Volunteers are needed for:

Wednesday Nov 5 – Thursday Nov 6 – Friday Nov 7 – Saturday Nov 8
10am to 12pm
12pm to 2 pm
2pm to 4 pm

Select the time that works best for you and write a message with your info in the Sustainable San Marcos Facebook event page or call 512.787.8170.

If you are unable to volunteer remember to pass the message around!

Thank you for participating!

  1. In case the link to Facebook does not work got to the group page “Sustainable San Marcos”
    or the event “2008 Campaign Sign Recycling Program”

  2. Please be advised the deadline to drop off campaign signs at Green Guy has been extended until Tuesday November 18. Remember signs and recyclables can be dropped off 24/7.

    Of course we will be needing volunteers for next week too, just let us know when you can help.
