Recycle Right Community Presentation

May 17, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Just because it has a recycling symbol on it does not mean it’s recyclable! Here in Deschutes County, we recycle bottlestubs and jugs when it comes to plastic. Come learn more about what is and isn’t recycled locally (and why), plus some tips on how to prevent waste in the first place. This will be a casual info session with visuals, followed by a Q&A session. It will be held outside in our garden next to The Environmental Center.
