Bring your old cell phones, aluminum cans (one pound minimum), pairs of athletic shoes and cookware (pots and pans) to the Zoo’s Ticket Plaza from 9:30 to 4:00 p.m. on March 17, St. Patrick’s Day and receive a $2.00 discount on the already low winter admission prices at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. With the tickets, admission prices ar just $6.25 for Adults and $3.25 for Children ages 2 to 11. There is a limit of one discount per person.
The aluminum cans collected will be recycled and the money from them will be used to support the Zoo’s Cans for Conservation Program that helps fund conservation efforts locally and globally. Cell phones will be either reused by various organizations or sent to an EPA approved recycler adding to the growing number of over 4,000 cell phones collected since 2005.
Along with the target items for the day, the Zoo also accepts other recyclable materials every day. Items such as compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), cell phones, rechargeable cell phone batteries and ink jet and toner cartridges can be dropped off at the Exhibition Hall near the main gate. You may also drop off newspapers, magazines, junk mail and bagged shredded paper to the green and yellow Abitibi-Bowater Paper Retriever bins in the Hippo Parking Lot behind The RainForest.
