August Ask Me Anything Event
Did you miss our last Ask Me Anything Event?! Still wish you could ask all of your recycling questions to a panel of experts? Now is your chance!
Our Ask Me Anything: Recycling Edition panel of experts will tackle questions such as - what is source-separated recycling? Why doesn't my town recycle the same things as other towns? If something has chasing arrows it means it can be recycled...right? Do egg cartons get recycled with paper or cardboard? Doesn't recycling cost money? And much, much more!
This online event is FREE and open to the public on Thursday, August 4th from 12 to 1 PM EST – all are welcome!
Registration required. All registrants will receive a link to the video recording afterward and are encouraged to send in their recycling questions regardless of whether or not they are able to join us live.
This event also qualifies for one credit of New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services solid waste operator continuing education.
