Please join us on Monday, March 5th at 7pm in the Needham Library’s Community Room for a lively discussion about how we can improve the quality of Needham’s paper, plastic, glass, metal recycling and organic composting. This session will be more narrowly focused than our November waste overview, and will be action oriented. So please come ready to roll up your sleeves.
We will discuss:
- What needs to change to ensure that our waste can be recycled rather than rejected and diverted to the trash stream and incineration?
- Is education enough? Knowing what we can and can’t recycle and how to prepare it?
- Actions we can take to address these challenges.
We’ll start the meeting with updates from our current recycling processor, Casella Waste Systems. We’ll also hear from Walter Godoy about the success of the current composting initiative at Hillside School’s cafeteria.
Then, everyone will be asked to roll up their sleeves and join a discussion about the various forms of contamination and next steps that Needham should take to move Toward Zero Waste.
To make sure we have room for everyone, please register at Eventbrite Registration: Toward Zero Waste – Reducing Contamination
