Raleigh recycling and Triangle Reuse Alliance are partnering to host a Raleigh Reuse Rodeo event. This event is a great round up and opportunity for residents to bring certain reusable materials to one location. And it benefits multiple local non-profits, dedicated to reuse and waste reduction.
The event will be held Saturday October 15, 2011, 10 am – 2 pm at Providence Baptist Church, 6339 Glenwood Avenue Raleigh (upper overflow parking lot).
