BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- Bloomfield’s annual Big Truck and Electronics Recycling Day is taking place this Saturday, May 18 from 9:00am-12:00pm at 1350 Broad Street, in the parking lot across from Brookdale Baptist Church. While kids are admiring Bloomfield's Big Trucks, their parents can drop off household electronic Recycling.

Sponsored by Suburban Disposal with cooperation from the Bloomfield Recycling Committee, Brookdale ShopRite & Brookdale Christian Church, Big Truck Day combines entertainment for children, and another public recycling event. The trucks that are driven daily by Department of Public Works and Parks staff, are parked in the lot every year on this day, for children to sit in and pretend they are driving.

Every year, the Big Truck Day event follows the annual North End Shredding Event, which took place last month and saw residents shred over 20,000 pounds--or 10 tons--of paper, which can now be recycled, rather than thrown in a landfill.

“Our annual Big Truck Day Recycling Event is a great way to teach kids about the importance of recycling, and thanks to our dedicated Public Works and Parks staff, sit in the big trucks so many kids love,” said Recycling Coordinator Louise Palagano. 

In the event of rain, this event will be rescheduled for June 1.
