'Upcycling' event set in Strip District

| Tuesday, April 12, 2011

An effort to "upcycle" a wide variety of goods from architects and designers will take place Saturday in the Strip District.

ZeroLandfill, a group aimed at finding use for goods from three-ring binders to glass, tile, shingles, stone and carpet, will stage the event at Guardian Self-Storage, 2939 Liberty Ave. The group defines "upcycling" as putting to better use material that otherwise might go to waste. It expects to have 7,000 pounds of items at the storage site.

From noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, people looking for material can pick up items. Those planning to attend are reminded to bring bags or boxes to carry material.

Details: 412-254-4939.
