Welcome to Beachside Recycling's Fun Zone!

 

We like to have fun here at Beachside Recycling, so we thought it was a good idea to create a page of facts, craft ideas, and games for all those who like to have fun too! You will also find some great entertainment on our Facebook page, so be sure to like us!

 

Some of the best of times can be found at our Events! We will host everything from Art Exhibitions, Battle of the Bands, Fashion Shows, Chili Cook-offs, and business community inclined events like E-waste Drives and CRV Drives!

 

We are also trying to start up a monthly Beach Clean-up! Ask us about our next date. Come help keep our beaches clean and join us afterwards for food, drinks, and more fun!

 

For more information on any other events or fun activities, please Contact us any time! We look forward to our community's involvement for years to come!
