Sure, recycling conserves natural resources and is part of a green economy…but how does it really work? Learn how what you do at home is part of a global industry. This crash course will cover how to recycle effectively, review what can be recycled in Frederick County, and describe the impact that “wish-cycling” of non-recyclable materials has on the program. We'll also examine what happens to all the stuff after it is collected from your blue bin- where does it go and what does it become? The end result will be a better understanding of the whole recycling system, from household bins to international markets.
Participants may bring in packaging or material samples they have questions about.
This is a FREE event but classroom space is limited so RSVP is requested.
