Recycling Discussion

Recycling sometimes the hardest of part of the TripleR: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We at the Environmental Ministry table field many questions about recycling. Do you have questions about what can recycled in Salt Lake City and what can’t? Are you curious about what happens to the materials after they’re taken away?

Join us Friday, March 16, 7:30pm, for a program presented by Jen Farrell of the Salt Lake City Waste and Recycling Division and Rebecca Smith, the sustainability director for Ace Recycling and Disposal. Ace is a family-owned, independent waste hauler that services 12 municipalities along the Wasatch Front. They plan to speak on what materials are specifically recyclable here, what is done with those materials, and why recycling them makes a difference. Jen will explain why many other materials are not recyclable and what can be done with them, as well as what programs and services SLC has to offer for waste diversion. Becca will talk about recycling in multiple-unit buildings. This is your chance to learn everything you need to know about recycling!
