CANCELED: Green Learning Series: Recycling Beyond the Basics

April 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ever wondered how (or if) recycling REALLY works? Join us to learn how what you do at home is part of a complex global industry. This presentation covers how to recycle effectively, what can (and can’t) be recycled in the City of Gaithersburg (and why), the impact that “wish-cycling” of non-recyclable materials has on the program, and a brief review of measuring the sustainability of recycling via greenhouse gas emissions. We’ll take a look at how your recycling gets sorted, where it gets sold and what the future of the program might look like. We’ll also play some games to make sure it all makes sense.
