Allen Recycles Day is an annual event held on the first Saturday in November. On this day, residents can bring items for reuse and recycling to the Allen City Hall parking lot. Examples of items being collected at this year’s event are books, eyeglasses, shoes, clothing, electronics, sports equipment, bicycles, pet supplies, and cardboard. A personal document shredder will be present at the event. To see all vendors coming to the event, a comprehensive list can be found on the flyer placed in your City of Allen October Utility Bill, or at www.keepallenbeautiful.com on the main page.
