Amy Spears, Oneida Nation Environmental Specialist, and Dean Hoegger, President, Clean Water Action Council, recap key concepts, principles, and practices that support Zero Waste.

“Waste Not ……. Want Not”
• What happens to your household waste once it goes into the garbage truck?
• Are there items in your garbage that could and should be re-cycled?
• Do you have a collection of whipped topping, sour cream, and yogurt containers in your cupboards?
• What happens to the cans and plastics you put on the curb?
• How “dangerous” are plastic bags?
• What about food waste — can we turn food waste into “gold?”
Come, learn more! Bring some household containers and plastics. Find out if they are recyclable.
