Master Recycling Class and Giving People a Second Chance

Register Now for the Master Recycler Class

Earlier this year I participated in the Master Recycler Class. I would highly recommend this class to everyone. I learned many, many new things concerning recycling and have effectively put some of the practices into place.

The classes will be from 6pm – 9pm on seven consecutive Thursdays from 2/4/16 – 3/17/16. There are also two classes on Saturdays (2/6 and 2/20) from 8:30am – 3:30pm where the calls will tour local recycling and composting facilities. The class costs $25 and students commit to volunteering 30 hours. If you are a teacher, this class counts for 34 PDUs.
