Recycling 101

Metro area residents send tons of garbage to the landfill every day. This comes with a price tag. Knowing how to recycle right, and a few handy, free or low-cost waste reduction tips can save space in the garbage bins and save money. In this interactive presentation, we will discuss what goes in and what stays out of the recycling and why and discuss ways we can reduce the amount of waste we generate in our daily lives.
