Ever wondered how (or if) recycling REALLY works? Sign up for this free program to learn how what you do at home is part of a complex global industry. This crash course will cover: how to recycle effectively, what can (and can't) be recycled in Frederick County (and why), and describe the impact that “wish-cycling” of non-recyclable materials has on the program. We'll take a look at how recycling gets sorted, where it gets sold and what the future of the program might look like. Participants may bring in packaging or material samples they have questions about. Please note: this is an adult level program.
