Anne Robinson, Recycling Education Coordinator for the City of Savannah , will give a Recycling Education Presentation
Tuesday, May 27 for the Savannah Chapter of the United States Green Building Council’s monthly meeting.
The presentation will introduce recycling as a market driven industry in order to explain why certain items are recyclable in some regions at particular times and not recyclable in others. In terms of local recycling; the presentation will cover where, what, and how citizens can recycle and explain the importance of recycling in Georgia for both economic and environmental reasons.
A review of the waste hierarchy will be included to remind the participants that recycling is only part of the equation – in order to make a real impact on our waste disposal habits we must first intercept our trash by either limiting our consumption or reusing materials.
Don’t miss this opportunity to find out how waste is being handle – and can be recycled – at Tuesday’s meeting. Also, find out more about Savannah’s curbside recycling program, starting January 2009!
