There will also be an event the first week of April in remembrance of the 43rd anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination.
From 9 a.m.-noon or 1-4 p.m., volunteers will have the opportunity to pick up recyclables and trash or help sort recyclables at the UT Martin Recycling Facility on Moody Street. All participants should meet at the recycling facility.
Gloves, bags and bottles of water will be provided.
Participants are encouraged to bring a camera and send UTM Recycles! a copy of the photos taken. The first 20 volunteers will receive a MLK Day of Service sweatshirt or T-shirt.
