Recycling 101 in Vancouver, WA.
Trash day at my house got a whole lot easier about two years ago when Waste Connections delivered "Big Blue". The new, clean, HUGE recycling bin can hold a bunch of stuff! That's good news, and bad news. If you like to talk trash, or actually, less trash, read on...
"Ever wondered why only certain items are collected for recycling or whether you really need to take the label off that can before recycling it? Well, the good news is, there will be an informational class to answer all your burning questions about recycling.
This 2 hour class includes a tour of the newly updated processing facility on Saturday, October 22, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.at West Van Materials Recovery Center. Space is limited, so sign up as soon as possible.
City-recognized neighborhood associations who send a representative to this class and publish an approved recycling article in their neighborhood newsletter can earn money for their neighborhood association treasury.
For more information or to pre-register, please call 360-619-4122, and provide your name, neighborhood association and phone number. Your pre-registration will help insure we have enough materials and room for everyone.
If you would like to just attend the class (not representing a neighborhood) you're welcome to do that. The class is open to the public." ~ Terra, The ReUser
