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 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?
