The event is staged by ZeroLandfill, a group aimed at putting to better use materials that might otherwise go to waste such as glass, tile, shingles, stone and carpet. It expects to have 7,000 pounds of items at the storage site. Event attendees are reminded to bring bags or boxes for carrying away their picks.
