Founded in 2011 by Rainbow Recycling, Hard 2 Recycle events are geared to bring awareness to other modes of recycling to our area. Four quarterly collections are held to cover the four corners of the County and one central event is held in Downtown Asheville. The goal is to educate, collect and divert items that would normally end up in the landfill (i.e styrofoam, electronics, books, batteries, cooking oil and much more).
Animal sanctuary items: Plastic totes, shoe boxes, crates (wire/plastic), towels & blankets pet toys & non-pellet stuffed animals, leashes (non-retractable) dry pet food (unopened) & clay kitty litter, cleaning supplies
