Those election signs that are cluttering lawns, intersections and library parking lots aren’t going to recycle themselves. In fact, most recyclers won’t even accept them.
Keep the mountains of signs and metal stakes out of the landfill by bringing them to the Volusia County Agricultural Center, 3100 E. New York Ave., DeLand, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Nov. 19 and 20.
Staff and volunteers from the Supervisor of Elections office, League of Women Voters, University of Florida/Volusia County Extension and Keep Volusia Beautiful will deliver the items to a specialized recycling center.
