Notes about this Saturday’s (6/26) eRecycling event at Arnold
We will be hosting Midwest Recycling Center (MRC) at our Arnold branch this Saturday from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. (sharp) to recycle your old, broken and obsolete electronic items.
Please queue up in the right lane
We expect a high turnout for our event. If you are recycling, please stay in the right lane. Try to pull your vehicle up as much as possible so we can avoid a large line of cars going out onto Vogel Road. Arsenal employees will be here to help assist you and direct traffic as needed. There will be signs in the grass letting you know which direction to go.
If you just need to use the branch, please stay to the left
Our branch is open during normal hours on Saturday (9:00 a.m. until noon). If you need to use the ATM, close on a loan or conduct any other branch business, please use the left lane to enter the property. We will try to accommodate your needs as quickly as possible.
Use the designated enter and exit lanes
If you’re traveling west on Vogel road, the first lane that leads into our parking lot is for entering only. The second is for exiting only. We expect a lot of traffic, and keeping these two lanes designated as such will help us keep everyone safe.
Let MRC do the heavy lifting
You are fine to stay in your vehicle and let MRC staff collect your recyclables.
