2nd Annual Recycling Block Leader Workshop on America Recycles Day!

2nd Annual Recycling Block Leader Workshop: One-Sort Recycling Edition!

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 | 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Please join us for our second annual Recycling Block Leader Workshop on America Recycles Day!  This year our workshop will go back to the basics and focus on regular recycling.  We will watch a virtual tour of the recycling facility that sorts Minneapolis recycling, learn in-depth information about what you can and cannot recycle in your blue recycling cart, learn about drop off locations for items that can’t be recycled curbside, participate in a hands-on learning activity, and test your knowledge with some recycling trivia.  We will also help facilitate further dialogue among block leaders so you can be aware of the other block leaders in your neighborhood!
