November 7 to November 8

You have the opportunity to join the Zoo in a mass recycling effort held twice a year! Thanks for making our 2014 spring event a success! The Power Recycling Weekend event presented by Ingram Micro in April collected over 6 tons of electronic waste!

At Power Recycling Weekend you can get rid of all your clutter and help the environment, too! Just drop off your old electronics, phone books, cardboard, and paper ready for shredding in the Zoo parking lot at our next Power Recycling Weekend in April​. Our recycling partners will take it from there. In addition to doing good, you will receive a discount coupon for Zoo admission.
