This team collects recyclables at public events in the Wisconsin Rapids area. Our on-the-ground efforts at community events like the State Water Ski Show and 4th of July Fireworks have rescued over three tons of recyclables, including cardboard, aluminum, glass and plastic from area landfills.
The Recycling Rangers come from all age groups and walks of life. The diversity of volunteers shows the great interest of all ages for respecting and protecting our environment. Volunteers range from high school students to senior citizens. They are members of the League of Women Voters; Clean Green Action; students at local schools; and concerned citizens who want to make a difference.
Recycling Rangers also offer a recycling container loan program. This allows residents who want to recycle at their smaller events, such as family reunions, weddings, fundraisers, etc. the opportunity to have collection containers on-site if they aren’t typically. These containers are being made available through generous grants by the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin Rapids Area and the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 101, of Wisconsin Rapids.
