St. Louis recycling event

Every year the St. Louis Community College in America holds a recycling extravaganza! For one day only they collect everything from electronics to carpeting, medications to clothes and so much more. According to http://ow.ly/f9kT50nZBMo this short event collected 38 tonnes from 800 cars last year which all went straight to be recycled.

Could your school, college, university or workplace organise a green event like this?

Or could you at home, take some spare time to clear and recycle any waste?
