Clean Sweep coming to Kelowna
Aug 28, 2013 / 4:34 pm
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Okanagan, Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore Okanagan and Planet Earth Recycling Ltd. have announced they are partnering to bring Clean Sweep to Kelowna on Saturday, September 14.
Clean Sweep is a community round-up of new and used clothing, housewares, furniture, building materials, appliances, and a variety of recyclables such as electronics, batteries, medical equipment and more.
“We are thrilled to partner with ReStore and Planet Earth Recycling,” said Lisa Hobson, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Okanagan. “Clean Sweep will provide the community with a convenient, one-stop drop off location and make a big impact to our landfills.”
The event will take place from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm, located in the parking lot of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Big Deals Used Furniture Store at 102 – 151 Commercial Drive. Breakfast and lunch will be served by Kelowna-Okanagan Mission Lions Club with proceeds supporting their community initiatives.
“Fall is typically a time when people are cleaning out their homes, garages, yards and wrapping up renovations. We invite everyone to keep new, used and recyclable items out of landfills and bring them down to the Clean Sweep event,“ said Neil Smith, Manager of ReStore Okanagan.
“You may be surprised at what you can recycle,“ added Paul Marois, Owner of Planet Earth Recycling.
“Whether the items are working or not doesn’t matter because whatever can’t be used by ReStore or Big Brothers Big Sisters can probably be recycled by Planet Earth Recycling.”
