It's a new year! Start you new year with new perspectives on REDUCING WASTE. Think creatively. Any reduction in waste is a step in the right direction.
The holidays is a time of gifting, which means we all might have old items that we need to find new homes for. This is the perfect opportunity to think about the disposal of old items.
- Can it be recycled? Does it need to be disassembled to be recycled?
- Maybe the old item can find a new home. Consider finding a donation location.
- PlanetCon is happening at Quatama ES on Jan. 11!
