The NFL has teamed with Verizon, Zoo Miami and the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee for a Super Bowl E-Waste Recycling Rally on January 18, 2020.
Who: The NFL, Verizon, Zoo Miami, and the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee
What: Area residents are invited to the Super Bowl E-Waste Recycling Rally to help with the “greening” of Super Bowl LIV by bringing their E-waste to this event sponsored by Verizon. The Recycling Rally is open to the public and free of charge. Local residents may drop off all types of electronic waste to be recycled responsibly and kept out of local landfills. Items such as computers, printers, monitors, cell phones and televisions will be accepted. (Large appliances such as refrigerators will not be accepted.) The first 250 families bringing in items will receive a gift bag and all who drop off items will receive a discount for Zoo Miami admission. Zoo mascots Kaz, Gigi, and Ellie, will be on-hand during morning hours to greet participants. The Recycling Rally takes place outside the Zoo entrance and it is not necessary to enter the Zoo to participate. Simply drive up and volunteers will be ready to help unload.
Responsibly recycling cell phones and other electronics helps to protect the natural environment of gorillas and other animals by reducing the amount of habitat disturbed by mining for the minerals used in these items.
As part of the Recycling Rally and in celebration of Florida’s Arbor Day, Miami-Dade Park’s Million Trees Miami initiative will give away trees to the first 500 participants requesting them. Simply drive up and Miami-Dade Parks’ staff will be ready to help. It’s not necessary to participate in the Recycling Rally to receive a tree.
When: Saturday, January 18, 2020, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Where: Zoo Miami 12400 SW 152 Street, Miami, FL 33177
(E-waste Drop-off Point is the North East Parking Lot)
