Recycling 101

This is a public information session with Town of Cary Recycling Specialist Srijana Guilford. Bring your questions and feedback, and learn more about how to reduce waste through all Town of Cary recycling programs!

Participants will receive informational materials on local recycling and waste diversion resources that they can distribute to their neighbors or community members.

Teen Challenge

This is a special opportunity for teen leaders to step up and make a difference in their community and the environment using the power of social media.

To complete this challenge, create a social media campaign that generates awareness of the importance of waste reduction, covering topics like recycling, composting, food waste, upcycling, minimalism, etc.
