Imagine Craft Mondays


Join us for Imagine Craft Mondays!

COVID-19 Update: All face-to-face educational programming, including Imagine Craft Mondays at the Recycling & Education Center, is SUSPENDED until further notice.

This includes all tours of our Recycling Center, Waste to Energy Facility, South Kent Landfill, Imagine Craft Mondays/Open Hours, as well as any offsite presentations or expo/tabling events. We believe this the responsible choice to minimize risk of exposure of COVID-19 for children, families, those groups or individuals especially at risk, and our staff. We look forward to restarting these educational experiences once community spread of COVID-19 has been abated.

Join us for Imagine Craft Mondays, every Monday from 1-5pm at the Kent County Recycling & Education Center! Bring the kids or grandkids with you – it’s fun for the whole family! Use your imagination with reuse crafts and visit learning stations focused on recycling, natural resources, and the history of trash in the Greater Grand Rapids area. Take a walk on our adventure path to see how your plastic bottles, metal cans and papers get sorted, baled and shipped to companies to be made into new things!

Imagine Craft Mondays are great for any age! Spend as much time as you’d like learning and creating and ask our staff questions that you’ve always wondered about trash and recycling. Imagine Craft Mondays are always free!

Kent County Recycling & Education Center is at 977 Wealthy SW in Grand Rapids, just east of the John Ball Zoo. We’re open to the public Mondays from 1-5pm but if you’d like a formal guided tour, please schedule it with our staff!
