Hundreds come out for annual 3R Bazaar recycling event
Hundreds of residents in The Woodlands braved the chilly temperatures and light winds on Saturday morning, Nov. 10, to attend the annual 3R Bazaar recycling event, hosted by The Woodlands Township.
The event featured educational booths touting the benefits of recycling, crafts tents for children and adults, shredding services for those with sensitive documents and a drop off recycle station where items that cannot be put into a curbside recycle bin — such as batteries, toothpaste tubes and other products — could be dropped off.
In addition to the various booths and services were stations for each of the nine village associations in the township, who were doing their best to win the Village Recycling Challenge. The event was hosted in conjunction with The Woodlands Farmers Market in the Village of Grogan’s Mill shopping center parking lot, the first year the event has been held at the new location. It continues through noon Saturday.
Township Board of Directors Member Carol Stromatt was one local elected official on hand Saturday, manning the Indian Springs Village Association booth. Stromatt said recycling is important and she was happy that the township’s Environmental Services Department helped put on the annual event.
