Recycling for the Health of the Everglades
We are happy to say that mountains of recycling are generated by people who visit and work in the Everglades (they are the only mountains we have in South Florida!). Sometimes this pile accumulates so rapidly; it fills the Recycling Center faster than we can remove it. If you would like to help sort, crush and bale recycled cans, plastic, glass and cardboard, you will be moving mountains to help maintain the health of the Everglades and the Earth!
